Groundwater Management

Groundwater management is comprised of determining local and regional groundwater flows and the delineation of local and regional aquifers. These hydrogeological studies will result in delineating aquifers susceptible to contamination. An important aspect of these studies is the understanding of surface water and groundwater interactions. When these studies are concluded, a series of preventative measures can be established to protect these aquifers.

In conjunction with Government authorites, designs of development setbacks, no-growth zones, and wellhead protection zones will maximize the protection of the groundwater resource with respect to quality and quantity. Such studies can be undertaken on a small scale or a large scale. These studies may include impacts of sewage disposal, agricultural practices, livestock practices, stormwater disposal, underground storage facilities, and surface spills.

Hydrogeological evaluations will include a multidisciplinary team of professionals specializing in air and satellite photo interpretation, surficial and bedrock mapping, drilling and testing procedures, surface and groundwater geochemistry, and evaluation of monitoring data. Moncur Groundwater prides itself on its experience and abilities to undertake such studies with enthusiastic partners such as federal, provincial, and local governments; universities; first nations; and developers of oil & gas, CBM, agriculture, and land.
