Groundwater is a critically important resource. Groundwater exploration, to identify and develop water supplies for municipalities, farmland, irrigation, and industry, has taken on greater importance in recent years, particularly as more people begin to rely upon existing groundwater supplies. To efficiently develop groundwater resources, it is critical to understand the hydrogeologic characteristics of the region.
HSA has been extensively involved in groundwater flow and contaminant fate/transport evaluations over the past 20 years. HSA has completed this work for both porous and fractured media under saturated and unsaturated conditions, including associated remediation actions. HSA regularly deals with such considerations as large‑scale investigations and monitoring programs, computer modeling of quantity and quality concerns with groundwater, risk assessment, the statistical interpretation of data, and three‑dimensional data visualization. Our team of hydrogeologists, geologists, and engineers are intimately familiar with a wide range of evaluation techniques and the regulatory and industry guidelines for conducting hydrogeologic modeling evaluations, including contaminant fate and transport assessments.
The combined hydrogeologic modeling evaluation and remedial design experience of HSA includes hundreds of projects encompassing a wide range of complex hydrogeologic conditions in both single aquifer and complex interconnected multiple aquifer flow systems, including groundwater interaction with surface water bodies. HSA is also experienced in a variety of data analysis and visualization methodologies, including two‑ and three‑dimensional interpolation and depiction of geologic, hydrogeologic, and chemical distribution conditions. Visualization methodologies are also applied to present modeling results, which allows HSA to communicate evaluation findings in a clear and effective manner to both clients and regulators.
