Striking a sustainable balance below ground

Industry depends on the ability to extract groundwater for a multitude of operational needs. The environment needs groundwater, too, to support ecosystems and provide drinking water. Balancing those two essential needs is where Barr comes in. Achieving this balance starts with understanding—through visual depictions, data collection, and years of experience with groundwater systems—how groundwater interacts with natural systems and water-supply wells. We build numerical models to predict the direction and magnitude of groundwater flow. Our modelers work at the leading edge of technological advancement, often working directly with software developers and developing custom applications that can unlock information you need to understand the impact of groundwater use on natural resources and the rate at which groundwater can be used sustainably.
