Local Company Geoscience Support Services provides slant well technology for the Doheny Ocean Desalination Project
San Dimas, CA, October 31, 2022 – Geoscience Support Services welcomes the recent approval of the Doheny Ocean Desalination Project, creating a reliable and drought-proof water supply in South Orange County.
“A key enabler of this project is the slant well design and construction method that Geoscience has developed.” says CEO Mark Williams. “Combining our 40 years of California water basin experience with best-in-breed technology, we have developed slant wells to provide reliable quantities of water for seawater desalination projects.”
Slant wells are drilled entirely from land, and allow saltwater intakes to be located under the ocean floor, eliminating impacts to marine life. The innovative technology has been proven in successful projects off Dana Point and near Monterey. This is the preferred seawater intake technology of the California Ocean Plan for seawater desalination plants.
“We are happy to contribute to relieving the water situation in Southern California”, concludes CEO Williams, “and are proud that a local company can provide such innovative technology”.
