GROUND WATER HYDROLOGY

Ground water flow occurs under virtually all lands, whether in shallow alluvial aquifers associated with rivers, or bedrock aquifers that transport ground water tens to hundreds of feet below ground surface.  A thorough understanding of the geologic terrane being evaluated, and the stratigraphic sequencing of water-bearing and non-water-bearing strata, is the first step in providing comprehensive assessments of ground water-related issues since ground water flow varies greatly, depending on the geologic characteristics of the flow environment.  The LWS team has professional engineers and geologists with decades of experience to assist with ground water issues related to:
