Movement of Groundwater in Soil and Rock
Hydrogeology deals with the mechanisms of groundwater movement through soil and rock and how groundwater flows and recharges local and regional aquifers. When hazardous substances impact a groundwater aquifer, the responsible party for the release is in violation of the State water quality standards. Regulatory guidelines must be adhered to or substantial fines may be levied on the property owner.
Michael Fallon, Principal Geologist, has a high level of experience with groundwater assessment, hydrodynamic studies and the fate and transport of contaminants in the subsurface. Knowing how to effectively control and treat impacted groundwater before it migrates onto adjacent properties, or moves down into a lower water aquifer, can limit a property owner’s liability and risk substantially. MGF’s specialists conduct a variety of hydrogeology related services including groundwater aquifer studies, contaminant transport modeling, the design and implementation of remediation systems, bench and pilot test studies, groundwater monitoring including natural attenuation, and final site closure negotiations with regulatory officials.
MGF is a licensed corporation under the North Carolina Board of Licensed Geologists (NCBLG) and has the experience and training to meet your groundwater challenges and mitigate risk for land developers and property owners.
