Hydrological Studies

Hydraulic / hydrological / hydrogeological studies for construction and urban development projects.

What is it?

These studies aim to evaluate and understand the physical characteristics (geology, land use, etc.) and dynamics of the watershed (floods, low flows, etc.).

Using information from different assessments, we produce flood hazard maps using geographical information system (GIS) and statistical approach to identify the areas in danger. These maps can be in low or high resolution depending on the specific need. These studies allow us to give realistic solutions adapted to the field.


Interests of hydraulic and hydrological studies

Hydraulic and hydrological studies make it possible to characterize the overall impact of the project on the river/waterflow conditions, subsequently on floods. This to define possible accompanying precautionary and mitigation measures.

These studies can be conducted as part of a risk assessment and/or a urban /territorial management and development.

Hydraulic studies provide an overview of the transfer and transport of water flows in a given river system. Coupled with hydrological analyzes, they make it possible to understand the flooding mechanisms.

Development on watercourse or its banks : the studies are used to determine the impact of the project on the flow conditions and in the establishment of any compensatory measures.
