The availability of fresh drinking water is a topic which has gained increasing popularity over the past years. According to the World Health Organisation, 27% (2.2 billion people) did not have access to a safely managed drinking-water service, located on premises, available when needed, and free from contamination, in 2022.  In 2018, Síor Consulting Ltd. (Síor) was approached by a confidential Client to provide comprehensive hydrological, hydrogeological, and geospatial/IT consulting services to characterise and develop a groundwater resource in Ireland. 

Síor was commissioned to characterise and develop a sustainable groundwater resource through the deployment of our multifaceted expertise in innovative hydrological, hydrogeological, geophysical, and geospatial/IT solutions.

Síor’s responsibilities include 

  • Extensive (25 km sq), detailed, hydrological, hydrogeological, and geophysical field-data collection activities. 
  • Engagement of governmental and community stakeholders. 
  • Acquisition and analysis of geophysical data to inform subsurface hydrological paleochannels, bedrock depths, and hydrogeological regimes. 
  • Groundwater abstraction and monitoring borehole siting and subsequent drilling supervision and monitoring design and deployment.
