groundwater modeling

Groundwater flow involves an intricate mix of geology, fluid mechanics, and hydrology, made more complex by the fact that it is underground and invisible. Every setting is different and every problem to be solved is unique. Groundwater models are useful tools for solving problems related to groundwater-flow and groundwater contamination.

Barr’s hydrogeologists apply the right model and the right level of study for contaminated-site projects. Applying simple codes for simple projects is an easy way to help save money. For complicated projects, we can employ an early modeling approach that allows us to focus the data collection and hone in on preferred design alternatives faster.

Our staff excels at developing technically credible models and explaining them to diverse audiences.
