All types of survey can be conducted throughout the year but there are certain months best avoided for certain types of survey. For example; conducting a topographic survey in the height of summer may cause delays due to excess vegetation and access issues. We advise avoiding the months of July, August and September for this reason.
The good news is anyone requiring water nutrient testing of a river can be certain this survey is possible at any time of the year with no hinderance from external factors.
