This week, we celebrated 5 years in our Kings Langley home! We’re proud of the progress we’ve made since our move, and would like to share some of our fondest memories.
Passive Relief Systems Back to DewateringIt is sometimes possible to control excess pore water pressures in a confined aquifer below the base of a proposed excavation by using passive relief well systems. The passive wells are drilled in the base of the excavation before the excavation has reached the piezometric level in the aquifer. As
‘A hole in one’ for WJ Groundwater who successfully drained a lagoon at the Montgomerie Golf Course in Dubai, UAE. We were set the challenge, by the main contractor Al Tayer Stocks and their subcontractor Ecocoast Contracting, to drain the golf course lagoon in one day so that a bund could be placed to allow

Multi-Aquifer Pressure Release in East LondonWJ WhitepaperAbstract Two adjacent deep shafts in east London involved excavation to 30 m below standing groundwater level and required temporary control of pressures in the Lower Aquifer below the London Clay. Three distinct aquifer horizons were present comprising the Lambeth Group channel sands, Thanet Sand and Chalk. One of
