Premier Surveys

Watercourse survey

Premier Surveys has vast experience in completing watercourse and river surveys of all characteristics. We have a long-standing relationship with the Environment Agency, having managed and delivered a wide range of major projects for the Environment Agency and flood modelling consultancies. All surveys are delivered to the latest surveying specifications provided by the Environment Agency. Our surveyors have the added benefit of specialist river-modelling knowledge and have completed the DEFRA Water and Flood First Responder training course to ensure they are appropriately qualified to work safely near water.
