EPR H1 Groundwater Risk Assessment

“Harbour View is a woodland burial ground of some 26 acres. The original planning consent permitted burial in a large percentage of this acreage leaving an area that was considered problematic due to water table and a perception through the Environment Agency of a risk of contamination to groundwater. Having gathered data and improved drainage over many years, we requested consent to add more of the remaining acreage to the burial area. The negotiations with the EA extended over 3 years and became increasingly complicated. Earlier this year, our planning team retained the services of BOLD to demonstrate via EA models and our own historical data that our proposal posed no risk to water quality. Paul successfully proved our argument to the satisfaction of the EA and we received consent to extend our burial area.
We found Paul to be prompt and efficient throughout our dealings with him and wouldn’t hesitate to use his services again should the need arise.”

EPR H1 Groundwater Risk Assessment

“From my initial contact with Bold Environmental I was confident that Paul could produce the Groundwater Risk Assessment I required to accompany an Environmental Permit Application. Throughout the project our conversations were always professional and remained focussed on the task at hand; but were equally friendly and relaxed. I think it important to have an easy rapport with someone if at all possible, and I felt that this was very quickly established. I was confident in Paul’s technical abilities and equally very comfortable with his approach in discussing the validity of the conceptual model and the modelling parameters with the Environment Agency prior to submitting the report. This approach assisted the success of the permit application.
Paul maintained a precise programme of activity and kept me up-to-date on progress with the EA and the project reporting; including prior warning as to when he might be away on leave.
I would not hesitate to contact Paul again for similar requirements.”

Hydrogeological Assessment and EPR H1 Groundwater Risk Assessment (in support of an Environmental Permit Application for Discharge of Treated Effluent to Ground).

“It was a pleasure to work with Paul from BOLD Environmental; he provided an essential and expert input into our application for a Environmental Permit for discharging treated effluent to ground. The work undertaken was carried out in a very professional and diligent manner, and the results presented in a timely fashion to enable the hydrogeological study and the groundwater risk assessment to be included in our permit application; the documents for which were prepared by BOLD. I would not hesitate to recommend him.“

Environmental Statement – Land Quality & Construction Chapter

“BPE was impressed with the degree of professionalism and project management demonstrated by BOLD Environmental in collating, structuring and delivering a Land Quality and Construction Chapter for inclusion within a significant Environmental Statement.
The technical components of the chapter completed by Paul Godbold (existing ground condition, brownfield contamination legacy and a draft Construction Environmental Management Plan) were comprehensive, well written and technically proficient.
Paul demonstrated acute awareness of our overall project timeframe and maintained a personal yet efficient communication style with ourselves and other project contributors to ensure timely delivery of the work. BPE were able to fully rely on Paul and would certainly work with him again given the opportunity. We can recommend BOLD’s services and personal approach.”
