LSCE’s environmental services address groundwater quality impacts regional and local scales, including the development of solutions to protect or improve potable water supplies. Our environmental services focus on non-point source water quality issues that include both anthropogenic and naturally occurring constituents and range from investigating existing groundwater quality conditions and water supply vulnerability to providing cost-effective and proven methods for water treatment.

 

 

The environmental-related services LSCE provides include:

  • Salt and nutrient (including nitrate) management and planning
  • Hydrogeologic vulnerability analysis and assessment (agricultural lands, etc.)
  • Modeling of fate and transport of salinity and nutrients
  • Geostatistical modeling
  • Groundwater flow and solute transport modeling
  • Seawater intrusion vulnerability assessment
  • Groundwater monitoring plan development, data collection and management, and reporting
  • Impacts analysis and technical support for CEQA and NEPA environmental studies
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Deep well injection feasibility, design, and permitting (EPA Class I waste disposal)
  • Peer review, technical testimony, and legal support services
  • Seepage testing, including ponds/lagoons
  • Spatial analysis of land use, hydrogeologic parameters, and environmental factors using geographic information system (GIS)
  • Groundwater, surface water, and soil sampling
