Protecting our most valuable resource
Water flows freely, but only a limited amount is available for human consumption. Restoring groundwater contaminated by industrial, commercial, and biological operations is critical to maintaining a safe drinking water supply. Understanding the hydrogeology, contaminant migrations pathways, and regulations is imperative for a successful groundwater investigation and remediation project. Extensive measures, to include engineering and institutional controls, must be implemented to protect this natural resource as contamination can be highly mobile and widespread. The geochemistry and underlying geology influencing the fate and transport of contaminants in an aquifer must be understood to develop realistic conceptual site models, create accurate groundwater models, and design effective remedial strategies. At Element, we understand the complexities surrounding this important resource as well as the intricate structures governing water. Element ensures that the most cost effective remedy is applied to improve the quality of this valuable resource.
