Water Resources Evaluation

Managing Groundwater Resources

Developing and maintaining a sustainable water supply requires a comprehensive assessment of water resource needs and availability. An essential part of this effort is to understand the hydrogeologic characteristics of the aquifer system and the interaction between surface water and groundwater. As the demand for groundwater increases, it is necessary to drill and analyze new wells, and assess the constraints including well yield, well interference, and distance to the distribution system.
