Hydrogeology Assessments

Our hydrogeologic team’s investigations can prove invaluable in the development of resource management plans and can significantly reduce water-related costs. Our comprehensive analyses of groundwater and aquifer resources can determine safe, sustainable groundwater yields and optimal withdrawal rates that maintain water quality.

The challenges facing our water supplies are many: surface water resources and quality are stressed by drought, flooding, contamination from agricultural and industrial runoff, and other challenges. In contrast, groundwater resources have gone largely untapped, and represent the least-vulnerable source of potable freshwater. For all kinds of water quality, usage, and supply issues clients, Hemmera offers comprehensive for hydrogeologic assessments of surface water and groundwater resources. A comprehensive water resource analysis can determine safe and sustainable groundwater yields and optimal withdrawal rates that can significantly reduce water related costs.
