Physical and contaminant hydrogeology evaluates hydrogeological impacts of projects and the nature and extent of soil and groundwater contamination. A typical project includes
- Site investigations to establish aquifer and aquitard properties and determine the quality and quantity of a water supply;
- Data analysis, synthesis and development of conceptual and numeric models;
- Reporting of results, impacts, risks and any regulatory implications.
Hydrogeological studies are completed to understand the processes by which groundwater moves and ultimately affect the conditions at a particular site. They can have a wide range of scales and focuses, including quantifying water supplies, understanding contamination transport mechanisms, or understanding dewatering impacts and requirements resulting from residential, commercial, or construction activities. Sometimes, such a study is mandated by specific processes, such as land development applications or the licensing of a pit or quarry under the Ontario Aggregate Resources Act. Physical and contaminant hydrogeology is a Geofirma core competency, and our expertise can save you time and money.
