Industry-leading expertise in water management, hydrology and hydrometry.

From policy development to strategic level assessments and site-specific investigations, APEM focus on delivering cost-effective and scientifically robust solutions, backed up by first rate project management.

Our integrated approach to water management encompasses water resources planning, drought management and resilience.

Water management

Scientifically-robust water management is vital to ensuring that there is enough water for all needs and the environment. APEM help our clients meet this challenge, with a range of expert skills including resource planning, supply and demand analysis and modelling, and risk and resilience analysis.

Our experience in developing environmental and ecological flow targets and policies helps us turn those strategies into pragmatic solutions on the ground. We also have a significant track record in completing Water Framework Directive studies and determinations across numerous industry sectors.

Drought management

Our expertise in this area lies in our practical experience and application. We have completed extensive drought monitoring and impact assessments for water companies and provided expert advice on management procedures, actions and evaluation techniques. We provide clients with ‘source to tap’ solutions, from low flows policy development to environmental impacts assessments and mitigation.
