Groundwater Modeling

Skelly and Loy routinely utilizes analytical and numerical modeling methods as a key component of hydrogeologic investigations to quantify impacts from mining, contaminant remediation, and groundwater dewatering systems. Typical modeling projects involve the evaluation of aquifer hydraulic properties (aquifer testing), defining hydrogeologic and surface watershed boundaries, evaluating watershed runoff factors, compiling precipitation records, accounting for water withdrawals by various users, reviewing stream flow data, and analyzing supply/monitoring well records. Models provide the ability to simulate various real and abstract scenarios for making local or regional water resource decisions and developing long-term water management plans to satisfy regulatory criteria.
