Study Area: Geo-Environmental

Geo-environmental processes on Grand Cayman contribute to sourcing potable water to residents and supporting natural resources.

After assessing the island’s baseline geo-environmental conditions, this section of EIA study will evaluate the potential impacts of the proposed project, including potential mitigation measures for avoidance or minimization of impacts. The geo-environmental study includes geology, soils, peat, and hydrogeology.

Key aspects:

  • Existing geology, soils, and hydrogeology information, as well as a field evaluation, help inform this portion of the study
  • Studies of geo-environmental include analysis of the freshwater lenses, brackish groundwater, and peat
