Peter Dumble


Hydrogeologist specialising in groundwater monitoring
Professional info


I am an independent hydrogeologist with more than 35 years professional experience covering environmental and water resource consulting projects. I have a particular interest in groundwater monitoring methodology and equipment and an active interest in groundwater monitoring research including currently acting as mentor to a NERC Industrial CASE PhD studentship at Birmingham University evaluating the “interpretation of water quality data from long-screened monitoring wells”. I am the principal author of the 2003 landfill monitoring guidance for the Environment Agency (England and Wales) and Scottish Environmental Protection Agency from which current ISO and British Standards guidance has evolved. Since 1994 I have been involved with the development and delivery of a series of groundwater monitoring training courses in the UK and Ireland attended by over 700 individuals. I was a co-founder and for 20 years the Managing Director of Waterra UK Limited, a market-leading provider of groundwater monitoring equipment in the UK.


After selling the Waterra business to In-Situ Inc in 2010, I continued as Technical Director, returning to full time independent consultancy with the establishment of Peter Dumble Hydrogeology in April 2013. Alongside the continuation of training courses and other consulting projects I am currently employing my specialist and technical skills in a development context as a technical advisor / trainer on a DFID-funded Water Security Project supporting the Ministry of Water Resources in Sierra Leone.
