Services

WE Consult has a profound experience in the following fields:

Water Resources Assessments

Water Resources Assessments

WE Consult undertakes assessment studies from water resources, both groundwater and surface water and both water quality and water quantity. Water Resources Assessments provide the foundation to make informed decisions in developing water resources from large scale water supply for human development or irrigation for commercial farming, but also to predict f.e. the impact of climate change on groundwater resources. WE Consult is highly experienced in undertaking hydrogeological studies, water quality studies and groundwater monitoring network design and data analysis.

Water Resources Development

Water Resources Development

WE Consult is your ideal partner for making the optimal use of the available water resources. WE Consult is specialist in rural and urban borehole siting, using geophysical techniques, borehole drilling (supervision) and rehabilitation, as well as borehole test-pumping supervision and analysis. Our hydrogeological expertise enables a sustainable and optimal development of water resources. WE Consult is also your partner in industrial/mining water supply, water resources development feasibility and planning studies, and rainwater harvesting.

Water Resources Management

Water Resources Management

WE Consult knows how to manage water resources in a sustainable manner for present and future generations while gaining economic, social, environmental and cultural benefits. WE design management plans and monitoring networks for streams, boreholes and springs.

WASH Studies

WASH Studies

In order to get insight into the value for money and sustainability of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene programmes, it is of paramount importance to provide updated regional and nationwide assessments of the operational sustainability of the provided water and sanitation services.

WE Consult has profound experience in carrying out baseline, mid-term and endline surveys for WASH implementation programmes, including household surveys, community focus group discussions and interviews with key stakeholders. WE Consult can also assist in community mobilization and in water and environmental sanitation and hygiene education.

Socio-Economic Studies

Socio-Economic Studies

WE Consult conducts baseline, mid-term and endline surveys for household development assessment, gender equality studies, reproductive health studies as well as family asset calculations.

Geophysical Surveys

Geophysical Surveys

Geophysical surveys are a powerful tool in all kind of hydrogeological and hydrochemical studies, for example to map aquifer geometry, to examine groundwater contamination or salt water intrusion, to acquire an indication of the groundwater potential and / or to indicate optimum locations for drilling and installing production boreholes.

WE Consult is highly experienced in conducting geophysical field surveys, which are preceded by the identification of target sites based on the presence of lineaments, known geological structures and presence of known high yielding boreholes.

WE Consult has the equipment to conduct Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT), a 2D resistivity profiling method to determine both the lateral and vertical variation in resistivity, as well as Vertical Electrical Soundings (VES), a depth sounding method to determine the vertical variation of resistivity, carried out at anomalies detected during Parallel Resistivity Profiling.

WE Consult is highly skilled and experienced not only in the geophysical field surveys but also the evaluation and reporting of the geophysical measurements (hydrogeological interpretation), which forms the starting point for groundwater resources development and management.

 

 

Geographical Information Systems

Geographical Information Systems

Ever since the start, WE Consult has had a strong component of GIS, GPS mapping and topographic surveying. By combining existing data, remote sensing, field data collection, and data interpretation with ArcGIS, comprehensive and reliable maps can be created. WE Consult can assist with data collection, database set-up and management, GIS mapping and analysis for any project requirements. 

WE Consult has access to a large amount of maps, data, and shapefiles, which are used in our projects. For almost any project GIS maps are produced, starting from simple location maps to interpolated thematic maps. GIS tools are often used for data interpolation and spatial analysis, examples are: groundwater potential interpolation, catchment analysis, and water supply coverage evaluation. 

 

Database Management

WE Consult can assist with data collection, database set-up and management and information management systems for any project requirements.

Groundwater Modeling

Groundwater Modeling

Groundwater models can be used to simulate and predict groundwater flow systems and aquifer conditions. With a groundwater model, the effects of hydrological changes (like groundwater abstraction developments) or hydrochemical impacts (like salt water intrusion or groundwater contamination and remediation) can be predicted. As such, groundwater models can be used in various water management plans for urban areas, but also for the support of irrigation schemes or rural water supply systems.

WE Consult is proficient in groundwater modelling, using the powerful graphical interface and modelling capacity of Visual MODFLOW.
