Wetlands Consulting Services

Wetlands are ecologically diverse environments, which also function as natural flood control and water purification systems. Earth Systems has experience both in the protection and management of natural wetlands, as well as in the design and construction of engineered wetlands for passive water quality treatment.

We have experience in ‘Water Sensitive Urban Design’ (also known as Sustainable Urban Drainage) – designing and constructing engineered wetlands for passive water treatment of stormwater, groundwater and wastewater.

Report for The International Network for Acid Prevention

26 May 2020

Earth Systems in collaboration with Okane Consultants, released a report providing new insight into ensuring low polluting mine operations, and more successful mine closure outcomes.

The report reviews conventional mine rock stockpile construction methods, and summarises improved construction technologies that are available to help improve water quality from mine wastes. Continued efforts to implement these technologies will help quantify their environmental and economic benefits.
