Intensive Agriculture

Aqualinc and Lincoln Venture’s combined expertise on water and contaminant transport in soils, vadoze zones, and groundwater systems, and our practical knowledge of agiculture and horticulture equips us well to take a “whole systems” approach to assessing the effects of land-use activities on groundwater quality.

Our team of scientists and engineers work collaboratively with government agencies and land-owners to develop answers to the following types of questions...
  • Will this farm development change groundwater quality significantly and how could the risk of adverse effects be minimised?
  • What is a groundwater system’s capacity to safely assimilate nutrients and other contaminants?
  • How significant is the vadoze zone in reducing the risk of groundwater pollution?
  • What is the “carrying capacity” of agricultural land overlying an aquifer?
  • What area of land contributes to the contaminants in groundwater pumped by a specific water supply bore?
