Wells & Pump Stations

Long-Term Reliability

Long-term reliability at the lowest life-cycle cost

We are experts in planning, permitting, engineering design, and construction management services for municipal, industrial, irrigation, and domestic groundwater supplies, Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR), deep wastewater injection wells, and well pump stations.

Our hallmark multi-disciplinary approach integrates a comprehensive understanding of the regional and site-specific hydrogeology with hydraulic engineering expertise and construction services. Our engineering designs and practical solutions deliver efficient system operation.

Design, Construction and Assessment of Wells and Well Pump Stations

The City of Mountain View operates 7 groundwater supply wells to meet approximately 10% of the City’s total drinking water needs. We have provided a variety of hydrogeological and engineering services to the City since the 1980s. We recently devised and implemented a focused well rehabilitation program and site improvements...

McLaughlin Well Field

The McLaughlin well field was developed as part of San Jose Water’s ongoing program to upgrade its groundwater supply system. We performed the initial site investigation, developed well designs for six new wells, oversaw well construction and testing and provided recommendations for new well equipment to maximize station yield and...

Well Replacement Program

San Jose Water (SJW) is an investor-owned utility that delivers water to over one million customers in San Jose. We have been providing a wide spectrum of groundwater-related hydrogeologic and engineering services to SJW since the early 1980s. In 2005, SJW embarked on a program to retire, rehabilitate, and replace...
