GeoReport News

In light of UK Government guidance concerning the Coronavirus (Covid-19) the BGS Geology Shops at Keyworth, Edinburgh and London are closed and many GeoReports are temporarily unavailable due to the limitations associated with our report writers needing to work from home.

We will still be able to supply the following GeoReports** via the links below:

** All reports for areas of complex geology are temporarily unavailable. This is because of the limitations associated with our report writers needing to work from home.

* The Engineering module is temporarily unavailable for this report. This is because of the limitations associated with our report writers needing to work from home.

We apologise for any inconvenience this causes. If you need any further information please contact enquiries@bgs.ac.uk

Borehole reports

Site investigation borehole

This report is designed for those drilling at a specific point and describes the geological succession you might encounter if drilling a borehole. It also includes geological map extracts. You can customise and enhance this report by adding modules.

from £282.00 (inc VAT)
Sorry, report temporarily unavailable

Water borehole : Less than 20m³/day*

This report is aimed at users intending to extract <20m³/day water (often for domestic use). It contains an evaluation of the geological formations beneath the site in terms of aquifer potential including water levels, groundwater yields and quality.

from £642.00 (inc VAT) Set location

Water borehole : Greater than 20m³/day*

This report is aimed at users intending to extract >20m³/day (commercial use). It contains an evaluation of the geological formations beneath the site in terms of aquifer potential including groundwater yields, water levels and groundwater quality.
