Hemel Hempstead – SA


In February 2016, we were asked to quote for the construction of 2 soakaway boreholes for surface water discharge at a golf club in Hemel Hempstead.

Hydro-geological surveys and Environment Agency groundwater source protection zone investigations were completed and indicated that soakaways would be permissible in this location.

We submitted a quotation and started work at the request of the client in July 2016. The construction of the two boreholes  took just 4 days, from breaking ground to completion. A soakage test was conducted after the construction of the first borehole to ensure adequate soakage for the client and proved a rate of 12.5 litres per second Рmore than enough for the clients needs.
