Pollution Prevention and Control


Water pollution from construction and engineering projects can cause major delays and have significant financial implications. 


Water pollution, and the threat of it, is a frequent cause of costly lost time delays on civil engineering projects. With in-house capabilities in freshwater ecology, water chemistry and water engineering; PBA are frequently called upon to help deliver civil engineering projects along watercourses. The team has extensive experience in supporting water engineering projects, from concept through to successful, cost effective and timely project delivery. 


PBA has an outstanding track record in this area; maintaining excellent river water quality in the most challenging situations and at the most sensitive sites. From cross-country pipelines to reservoir discontinuance, our knowledge-based approach assists clients, throughout all seasons of the year, to deliver their projects on time and on budget. 


Our services in this area include: 

 Baseline surveys & biological monitoring

Working method statements

Environmental risk assessments

Environmental control plans

Environmental clerk of works

Emergency response


Once PBA are engaged, our clients are better able to focus on the engineering task at hand, and regulators have confidence with the on-site safeguards. We are delighted to have been part of a project team that was shortlisted for the 2012 Utility Industry Achievement (Environment) Award.


Contacting us at an early stage in your project early may help prevent delays and unexpected financial cost at a later stage.
