groundwater

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, water supply, and groundwater sustainability.

Barr uses computer-based models to understand and predict the direction and magnitude of groundwater flow related to natural systems and water supply wells. Using these models, we can determine the impact of groundwater use on natural resources and the rate that groundwater can be sustainably used.
 
our service specialties include:
  • aquifer testing
  • dewatering and seepage design
  • groundwater supply and permitting
  • groundwater sustainability analysis
  • groundwater/surface-water interaction
  • groundwater-monitoring programs
  • injection-well design and permitting
  • regional groundwater modeling
