Diverse Groundwater Services
Our Groundwater Team serves our clients’ needs for groundwater resource development and management. Work ranges from groundwater water rights and supply planning to well design, construction, testing, and operational optimization. Our groundwater services include innovative groundwater solutions that provide water storage and water quality improvements including:
- Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR)
- Soil Aquifer Treatment (SAT)
- Riverbank Filtration (RBF).
Our work is conducted in a wide variety of geologic settings ranging from deep bedrock aquifers to alluvial aquifers that are closer to the surface. Each location can benefit from conjunctive management.
An Array of Consulting Tools
The LRE Groundwater Team uses a diverse set of field data collection tools to characterize subsurface conditions including:
- Investigative boreholes
- Aquifer tests
- Geophysical surveys
- Remote sensing.
Our hydrogeologists use data analysis and models, ranging from simple, low-cost calculations to complex, basin-wide models. We use 3D geological modeling to assess and visualize subsurface data. We construct and work with numerical groundwater models with large amounts of input data, use automated calibration software to improve model accuracy, and employ rigorous uncertainty analyses. Our modelers also frequently gain schedule and budget efficiency by implementing advanced data management techniques such as cloud computing.
