Water Resources

From alluvial aquifers to fractured bedrock aquifers to karst conditions, groundwater quantity and quality can vary widely dependent on geologic and hydrogeologic conditions. Understanding both the potential production capacity and the factors impacting water quality are the keys to a successful groundwater development project.

Southeast Hydrogeology, PLLC provides focused water resources services for groundwater development, as well as surface water modeling for flows and nutrient loading rates within watersheds. We are uniquely qualified to provide water well diagnostics, trouble shooting and long-term performance monitoring to assure optimal performance from water supply wells.Out groundwater studies take advantage of our GIS capabilities and well as our experience in groundwater modeling, drilling and logging of test wells, well design and pumping tests to determine production well capacity.Our groundwater vulnerability assessments take advantage of powerful GIS tools to assess both karst and non-karst environments using models such as DRASTIC or EPIK, along with other tools to identity potential threats to water quality.

A representative list of our water resources services includes:

• Hydrogeological Assessments
• Well Siting Studies
• Recharge Analysis
• Pumping Tests and Analysis

Hydrogeological Assessments

Hydrogeological assessments range from well siting studies, including lineament and fracture mapping; groundwater recharge assessment; water availability analysis and pumping tests to determine well capacity. Southeast Hydrogeology specializes in bedrock environments, including karst, which can often be complex and difficult to characterize.

Spring Water Assessments

Development of a spring water as a bottled water source needs to take into account year-round flow rates, water quality, surface water influences (GWUDI), accessibility and proximity to a local bottling plant. Southeast Hydrogeology, PLLC is uniquely qualified to assess springs for development both from the perspective of the property owner and from the perspective of the bottling company.

Video Logging

Video logging is, without exception, the most useful all around tool for performing diagnostics on water wells.Our equipment is capable of logging wells to depths of up to 1,000 feet with both downward and side facing cameras for optimal evaluation of the casing and screen.
