Applied Groundwater Science and Engineering Solutions

Environmental Services



LSCE’s environmental services address groundwater quality impacts at 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
