Soil, Land Resources and Erosion

Land resource assessments play a crucial role in evaluating the potential impacts of major projects on soil and land resources

Regulatory agencies rely on these assessments to determine the suitability of land for a particular use, while proponents use the information to design final landforms and develop rehabilitation plans that mitigate risk.

We evaluate the land's capability to sustain a specific land use without degradation by assessing factors such as climate, soil type, and erosion hazards. Neglecting these limitations can lead to soil degradation, erosion, and infrastructure damage. We provide practical solutions to manage these limitations, helping our clients make informed decisions and mitigate project risks while ensuring sustainable use of the land.
