Why scour surveys are so important?
Arco Professional Safety Services Ltd can provide assessment of scour and other hydraulic actions at highway and railway structures crossing or adjacent to waterways. Scouring can occur in any area of water flow, from streams and rivers to tidal estuaries. As swiftly moving water runs under bridges, piers and other structures it can cause scour holes, these holes will then compromise the integrity of the structure. It is important to survey these holes and assess the risk they may cause to identify and prevent disasters before they strike.
Arco Professional Safety Services Ltd provides processes to determine the level of risk associated with scour effects. It also includes processes to assess the robustness of structures in a flood.
Our highly trained and competent engineers are capable of accessing the most difficult to access structures utilising multi-faceted techniques including rope access, confined spaces and safety boats access. After a scour survey, countermeasures and monitoring may need to be carried out; we can also supply remedial work to fix any scour holes.
