There he was involved in hydrologic investigations of Funen Island first, to investigate from 1904 to 1908 the groundwater currents and capacities of the Tåstrup region close to Flensburg at the Danish-German border. In 1911 Sørensen was appointed chief engineer of his office and from 1922 to 1943 directed the Copenhagen groundwater service.\Sørensen was one of the few hydraulic engineers of his time having an international profile. He for instance applied methods of groundwater prospect devised by Adolf Thiem (1836-1908) and applied them to his country. Notable is also a water supply pipeline for the Danish capital of 1,100 mm diameter and 40 km length that was taken into service in 1934.
