Geohydrologic Studies

Crucial to the Planning Process

At GEOSCIENCE, we understand the importance of adopting a plan-based approach to groundwater resource development based on sound scientific principles. We also understand the level of coordination and collaboration required to navigate the often complex matrix that is water resource management in California.

A thorough understanding the hydrological landscape is critical to creating effective and sustainable groundwater resource development. Our experience in conducting geohydrologic studies and investigations helps set you on the right path.

The staff at GEOSCIENCE has the experience and expertise in conducting the geohydrological studies and investigations required to develop project and management programs that ensure long-term sustainability of groundwater resources:

  • Groundwater Use Assessments
  • Urban Water Management Plans
  • Groundwater Sustainability Plans under the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act
  • Salinity Management
  • Conjunctive Use
  • Artificial Recharge
  • Indirect Potable Reuse projects
  • Water recycling projects
  • Safe yield/perennial yield
  • District-wide Groundwater Management Programs
  • Well Rehabilitation and Monitoring Programs
  • Subsidence Monitoring Programs

Leveraging our nearly 40 years of experience in the disciplines related to solving the most difficult and complex issues involving groundwater, the geohydrologists at GEOSCIENCE are positioned to help you find practical, sound solutions.
