KANO STATE WATER SUPPLY EXPANSION PROJECT
For: Kano State Water Board, N.Nigeria, Parkman International - Forthcoming
Kano is one of the principal cities of Nigeria with a population of 7M inhabitants. The consultant will act as the hydrologist and water resources planner for this major World Bank funded study. Investigations will include river surveying, catchment modelling, data assessment and extension, culminating in reservoir siting and yield analyses. A 20 yr. Water Resources Master Plan will be drawn up for the state, making use of tools such as the HEC-HMS catchment modelling software, satellite imagery, and the MapInfo GIS system.
REGIONAL SURFACE WATER MANAGEMENT PLAN
For: Somerset Drainage Boards Consortium - 2008
The SDBC wished to identify and implement an appropriate management strategy to deliver integrated Surface Water Management Plans and its Ecological Potential duties under the Water Framework Directive. The Consultant advised on the future likely duties of the IDB, and identified appropriate data management structures, technical tools, software and staff training needs to meet these challenges.
WATER RESOURCE AND MANAGEMENT PLANNING FOR THE CITY OF TALLINN
For: Tallinn Water Ltd. - 1998
The Consultant provided a two month input to devise and implement new techniques for catchment planning and water resource optimisation for the city of Tallinn, Estonia. This involved use of Geographic Information Systems, reservoir assessments, and predictive techniques for water quality.
The Consultant also developed new management accounting financial models for the management team, primarily intended as Cost-Benefit type tools to evaluate long term investment planning. The study was funded by EU/UK Government funds
LAKE ÜLEMISTE CATCHMENT MANAGEMENT PLAN
For: Tallinn Waterworks Municipal Enterprise - Parkman International - 1997
Industrial and agricultural pollution is an increasingly severe problem for Lake Ülemiste, which supplies the major city of Tallinn, Estonia (pop. 500,000). Brian Faulkner has been appointed as the sub-consultant to undertake a comprehensive Risk Assessment Study of pollution impact on the Lake, leading to a 10 year Management Plan for the whole of the contributing catchment. River modelling, risk analysis, cost-benefit appraisal and Geographic Information Systems are all expected to be used in the study.
REGIONAL MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR SURFACE AND GROUNDWATER USAGE
For: Federal Ministry of Water Resources, Republic of Nigeria - Forthcoming
Increasing demands by industry and fadama agriculture on limited water supplies are jeopardising long term supplies throughout northern Nigeria. A major World Bank funded study has been commissioned to appraise the status of current and projected demands in relation to currently available supplies, and to formulate a long-term water resources management plan. A key part of this plan will be the construction of major river and reservoir models using ISIS™ to formulate various irrigation abstraction and reservoir management operating rules. Brian Faulkner will act as sub-consultant project manager and principal modeller for the ISIS and GIS components of the study.
RIVER TUD CATCHMENT MANAGEMENT MODEL
For: May Gurney (Technical Services Ltd) and UK Environment Agency (Anglian) - 1996
Development of a catchment hydrological model used to examine the effects of new development on river regime. The model is subsequently to be used by the Environment Agency to determine catchment planning policies.
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT FOR WATER SUPPLY SCHEMES, KEBBI STATE
For: Kebbi State Water Board, Republic of Nigeria - 1996
Consultant on the World Bank funded project, undertaking the Environmental Impact Assessment of State wide proposals for increased groundwater abstraction for urban water supply. Particular reference was made to reservoir proposals affecting downstream water supply and agricultural activity. The evaluation of the impacts of increased wastewater from newly supplied towns on downstream river management practices was also considered.
KADUNA STATE WATER RESOURCES MASTER PLAN
For: Kaduna State Water Board, Republic of Nigeria - 1995
Water Resources Engineer for the 20 year master plan for Kaduna State, covering 68,000 km2 of study area. Responsible for data collection, reservoirs inventory, river and reservoirs modelling, and identification of new water resources, including reservoir yield analyses and economic appraisal.
ASSESSMENT AND CONTROL OF RIVER POLLUTION
For: University of Bristol, Department of Civil Engineering - 1995
Occasional lecturing on the external 5-day course offered by the Department of Civil Engineering.
RIVER RASE CATCHMENT MODEL
For: National Rivers Authority (Anglian) - 1995
Project Director supervising construction of a detailed hydrological model, to provide input to a flood scheme hydraulic model for the town of Market Rasen, Lincolnshire.
EMERSONS GREEN DRAINAGE MASTER PLAN - 1994
For: EGLOG Consortium Ltd.
The Emersons Green development is one of the largest residential and business schemes in the south of England. Substantial problems were envisaged with the safe disposal of greatly increased run-off from the 395 ha. developable area. The city of Bristol downstream was considered to be at risk from the development. Major flood alleviation proposals had to be designed and incorporated into a strategic master-plan which formed the guide for all subsequent drainage works on the many separate sites. Central to the master-plan was the design and testing of six linked major reservoirs to control flood runoff, amounting to a total of 100 000m³ of storage.
NRA SHORT-TERM CONSULTANCY
For: National Rivers Authority (South Western) - 1994
Appointed by the Development Control Section for a 2 month period to provide technical support on catchment modelling studies and Land Drainage Consent applications.
MERTHYR TYDFIL ASSET MANAGEMENT PLAN
For: Merthyr Tydfil Borough Council - 1993
Project Engineer co-ordinating all aspects of the Drainage Area Plan for Merthyr Tydfil town (population 40,000), including sewer records upgrading, flow survey planning, hydraulic model building and verification. The study involved appraisal of over 50 Storm Water Overflows for water quality management purposes.
CATCHMENT DRAINAGE STRATEGIES FOR URBAN DEVELOPMENT CONTROL
For: The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (Welsh Branch) - 1992
Paper presented to the Institution by invitation. Awarded the Morlais Owens trophy for the 'Best Paper of the Year', October 1992.
NATIONAL RIVERS AUTHORITY SHORT-TERM CONSULTANCY
For: National Rivers Authority (Wessex) - 1992
Appointed by the Development Control Section of NRA (Wessex) for a six month period to undertake hydraulic/hydrological evaluations of submissions by developers/county councils.
RIET RIVER IRRIGATION AREA WATER MANAGEMENT STUDY
For: Department of Water Affairs, South Africa - 1986
Project leader of an operational study evaluating the technical and economic effects of a proposed major water transfer scheme between the Orange and Riet rivers on a historically important area of 16000 ha. of irrigation along the Riet River. The study assessed available reservoir supplies in conjunction with existing crop patterns, and determined the need for additional supplies via canal transfer. Economic outputs were modelled; the groundwater and river salinity effects were studied in detail, and proposals for changes to irrigation scheduling and reservoir management were made.
SALINITY CONTROL PROGRAMME FOR CAPE PROVINCE, SOUTH AFRICA
For: Department of Water Affairs, South Africa - 1985
Formulation of policy measures needed to control salinisation of water resources in dryland and irrigated areas, based on earlier research programmes. Work included river and reservoir mathematical model formulation, including work on the SALMAR model. Appointed as member of the National Committee for Mineralization Research 1984-86. Work presented and published as author at The Proceedings of the 2nd National Hydrology Symposium, Pietermaritzburg, September 1985.
SALINITY CONTROL PROGRAMME FOR CAPE PROVINCE, SOUTH AFRICA
