Groundwater Availability Evaluations

The first step in the development of reliable groundwater supplies is the performance of a thorough evaluation of the available resources. R.W. Harden & Associates, Inc. tailors each groundwater availability evaluation we perform to the individual needs of the client and to the unique hydrogeologic conditions present in the client’s area of interest.

In general, groundwater availability evaluations are performed in phases, beginning with the acquisition and analysis of information obtained from governmental agencies, commercial and academic sources, and R.W. Harden & Associates, Inc.'s extensive project library. Where available information is insufficient to verify the productivity and/or quality of the target aquifers, additional tasks such as test drilling, aquifer testing, geophysical surveys, and groundwater modeling are commonly performed to supplement existing data. The findings and recommendations of studies previously performed by R.W. Harden & Associates, Inc. have been used for a variety of needs including groundwater supply development, infrastructure planning, financial due diligence, groundwater valuation, and regulatory compliance.
