Barnaby has over 22 years of experience as a project manager and hydrogeologist on environmental development, mining/quarrying, and infrastructure projects in the UK, New Zealand, Central Asia, and India. He’s worked on environmental impact assessments (EIA), water resource assessments, geotechnics, contaminated land management, irrigation design and modelling, and stormwater and wastewater disposal.
Much of his recent work is related to impact assessments for quarry and mining development and restoration, such as West Cumbria Mine’s proposed metallurgical coal mine and Sirius Minerals’ potash mine. However, his EIA experience isn’t just in mining and quarrying. He was also team leader for the groundwater components of the southern section of the Phase 1 HS2 EIA.
Barnaby has been involved with the Mineral Products Association’s water working group for several years and is a regular attendee and contributor at events. He’s secretary of the committee of the Hydrogeological Specialist Group within the Geological Society and has a particular interest in encouraging young people in the field through his involvement.
