Sediment management in rivers

Too much sediment ends up in our rivers and sewers due to soil erosion as a result of natural processes or (too) intense agriculture. This leads to excessive maintenance by governments, loss of fertile agricultural land and water quality problems in our streams. Antea Group looks for solutions at the source with soil erosion plans and projects.

Antea Group also helps governments develop instruments (numerical models for sediment transport and water quality) and apply them to come up with area-focused solutions, such as sediment catchment, profiling works on streams, etc.
