Groundwater Management

High quality groundwater sustains a substantial, and increasing, amount of economic activity in New Zealand. It is the source of drinking water for about 40% of New Zealand’s population, and of irrigation water for about 200,000 hectares of land.

Groundwater also sustains highly valued spring-fed streams, lowland lakes, and wetlands.

Aqualinc’s team of engineers and scientists work collaboratively with local government, industry, and land-owners to develop innovative and cost-effective methods for managing this valuable resource. We undertake consulting and research projects in the following areas:

  • Determining environmentally sustainable levels of groundwater abstraction.
  • Assessment and management of salt water intrusion risks.
  • Development and use of groundwater models for management of groundwater allocations.
  • Integrated management of groundwater and surface water.
  • Aquifer pump tests.
  • Well and pump performance testing.
