IGS acknowledges and respects the values of Traditional Owners of the lands on which we work, and we strive to find opportunities to work alongside them to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes.
IGS has carried out a wide variety of projects across all Australian jurisdictions and hydrogeological environments, ranging from arid lands to tropical savannah, temperate regions, urban and industrial settings. Key examples of projects for which we have cemented enduring and trusted relationships with clients include:
- Groundwater flow and contaminant transport modelling as decision support tools for environmental impact assessments, mine operations and mine closure planning across Australia.
- Hydrogeological assessments and liaison with government agencies to support irrigated agriculture development in Northern Australia.
- Exploration, development and testing of water supply options for large mining, gas pipeline and road construction projects.
- Field studies, groundwater modelling and expert peer review services to support groundwater allocation and management.
- Assisting the wine industry and other irrigators to address chemical and biological clogging of irrigation infrastructure.
- Expert peer review of technical studies underpinning Coal Seam Gas development in South East Queensland.
- Downhole geophysical surveys to assess integrity of high temperature/pressure production and monitoring wells.
- Regional groundwater sampling, hydrochemistry and environmental (isotope and anthropogenic gas) tracer interpretation for water resource assessment.
- Assessments of surface water-groundwater interactions in systems ranging from small upland streams to large rivers in tropical Far North Queensland and the Kimberley region in Western Australia.
