Hydrogeology Engineering and Field Groundwater Evaluation


Groundwater Consultants for modeling, studies, and implementation of groundwater management projects



When engaging in Hydrogeology Engineering consultant services, we start with science at the onset of a project, building on our staff's technical and interdisciplinary foundation in engineering and in natural and physical sciences. These combined strengths allow us to effectively evaluate any site condition and recommend value-engineered solutions to your problems. Our hydrogeologists, hydrologists, and engineers assist cities, water agencies and private landowners to develop and protect surface and groundwater supplies by conducting groundwater resource evaluations and impact and mitigation analysis, and supporting the design of new water wells and recharge basins to develop new local water supplies. We also conduct specialized hydrogeological, environmental, and biological studies to address a project’s environmental impacts to evaluate the relationship between water levels, soil moisture, and vegetation.


Planning/Design/Feasibility


Design and Feasibility

Through our G3 Method, we apply the hydrogeological and groundwater engineering knowledge of our team for the measurement, plan, and development of any water protection, management or conservation project that may become necessary. As we consult in the draw-up of models and design for hydrogeological projects, you can count in the expertise of our team to make sure solutions are placed on a firm scientific basis and develop as according to plan.

Due Diligence

With our G3 method, we provide the technical skills and scientific understanding to address all groundwater requirements that may be presented on your projects. Our specialized hydrogeological consulting and ample experience have given us the capacity to manage every challenge presented to us.

Design Studies

We provide an in-depth analysis of the design of groundwater projects as hydrogeological consultants. Our role is to make sure plans are correctly based on accurate data and that conditions and expectations have been correctly assessed at all times, giving a second look from an informed standpoint.


Includes:


Risk Mitigation & Assessment

Hydrogeological risk assessments are drawn up to prevent events where current and projected groundwater behavior may pose damage to both people and assets in an area. Our groundwater consultants are experts in studying areas to determine levels of vulnerability from groundwater disturbances whether from natural occurrences or human activity. The data collected will serve as a base to draw up a hydrogeological risk mitigation plan that will, in turn, allow protect people and valuable assets and inform the development of future projects and their safety.

Water Chemistry

Within our groundwater consultancy efforts, we study the role of geochemical materials and elements in watersheds as well as their interaction, concentration of elements within groundwater bodies, their composition, the purity of water, as well as other characteristics.

Hydrogeological evaluation

Hydrogeological evaluations are an integral part of our service as hydrogeological consultants, where we study plans and find solutions for the development of groundwater resources. This includes consultation on groundwater mapping, watershed and terrain conditions, water quality, field testing, and lab testing, as well as the reporting of collected and analyzed data.

Water Well Design, Assessment, Rehabilitation

When working with wells and their access to groundwater, shifts in their water levels and its water quality will require an intensive analysis of a wide number of conditions. Field and soil analysis, surveying of existing wells and well projects, and of course, aquifer testing, as well as other studies, will determine the next steps to take and the outlook for the useful life of these watersheds. With these analytical tools, we'll also be able to provide consultancy on rehabilitation of well properties and groundwater extraction projects.


Constructions Services:


Project Oversight

Our hydrogeologists and groundwater expert consultants are able to provide insight on analysis of hydrogeological projects, bringing an informed second opinion and the needed oversight that will facilitate that these projects go forward safely and efficiently.

Solution Management

We are experts at finding solutions as hydrogeological consultants for projects and groundwater management. As we have done for years, our expertise and scientific understanding allows us to pass on the knowledge and insight necessary to provide the ideal methodology and solutions to concerns in hydrogeology and groundwater management issues.
