Bowden Consultancy (trading name Bowden Environmental) was established in 1997 and March 2017 marked the 20th anniversary for this Kaiapoi based business.

The company takes its name from founder Michael Joseph Bowden who as an engineer specialised in water management.

The company was set up initially to assist individuals and businesses that required specialist expertise in water resources engineering involving hydrology, hydraulics and water resource systems including flood control and drainage. The core business of Bowden Environmental is helping farmers, farm managers and other landowners obtain resource consent for their farming practices. The requirements for gaining resource consent can be a complicated process for farmers, so Bowden Environmental is here to assist in the process.

The company has expanded its operations and services which relate to all aspects of groundwater and surface water consents, effluent discharges, management plans and storage, water supply and services, reticulation, resource management, site investigation and ecology. The company also has a broad experience of council and environmental court hearings, compliance and environmental monitoring programmes and reports.

Significant experience has been gained over the years and is routinely called upon to provide in field data collection and analysis (e.g. aquifer testing, surface water gauging, and water quality testing).

The company has undertaken several high profile Commissioner appointments on behalf of a number of South Island Regional and District Councils over the years.

We look forward to a bright future as your choice in a Canterbury owned and operated environmental consultancy.
