Reservoirs and lakes

Reservoirs and lakes

PBA has been engaged on reservoir and dam projects for over twenty years, for new-build, restoration and safety improvement works. We provide Panel Engineer services under the Reservoirs Act and advise clients on the implications of current legislation for existing assets and new projects.

Our team has extensive experience in the creation and improvement of reservoirs and lakes for amenity, water supply and drainage purposes, especially in new development, historic landscapes and environmentally sensitive locations. Our restoration experience also extends to the enhancement of watercourses, and we offer supporting ecological advice and water framework directive assessments to identify long-term improvement.

Our full suite of multi-disciplinary services supporting our reservoir and lake work includes hydrological and hydraulic modelling, structural inspections, ground investigations, hydroelectric feasibility studies, detailed design, project management and contract preparation. We also offer advice on de-silting and waste management, budgeting and water management, as well as water quality issues.

A full awareness of the consenting and permitting processes allows us to guide our clients through the project delivery process within a clearly defined programme.
