Susan Rabbitte

Susan Rabbitte is originally from Northern Ireland. She gained her undergraduate degree in Natural Science (Geology) from Trinity College, Dublin. From there she travelled to the goldfields of Western Australia and worked as an exploration geologist, well logging and sampling. Then it was back to the UK to study for a post-graduate degree in petroleum geology at Imperial College, London. Remaining in London Susan moved into the environmental sector and spent 6 years involved in the investigation of brownfield redevelopment sites, with a particular focus on the characterisation and remediation of hydrocarbon contamination within both soil and groundwater. A move to New Zealand followed, and settling in Hawke’s Bay almost 11years ago her skills expanded to meet a local need for groundwater quantity assessment. This now forms the bulk of her workload as she provides farmers, industrial/commercial operations and local councils with the science and consenting requirements to obtain and maintain their groundwater abstractions. This includes initial well / or well field location advice, aquifer pump test planning and data analysis and on-going monitoring and reporting. Throughout her time in NZ Susan has always maintained her interest in the environmental sector and is regularly involved in site investigation and remediation projects. Most often these take the form of site investigations associated with the redevelopment of former horticultural land, but may also include industrial sites. Assessments are usually undertaken as a pre-purchase due diligence or they may be required under the National Environmental Standard for Assessing and Managing Contaminants in Soil to Protect Human Health.
