Groundwater Modeling

Environmental impact and water resources investigations are principally supported by the conceptual site model. A conceptual site model characterizes the site setting, natural environmental effects, and anthropogenic impacts, primarily based on available data and legacy information. One of the challenges of environmental impact investigations is determining the validity of the conceptual site model and prioritizing data gaps.

To overcome this challenge, EHS Support’s team of scientists utilizes the Groundwater Modeling technique and technology. Groundwater models become an important asset in subsurface investigations because they:

  • Test the conceptual site model in a dynamic setting by applying equations that are known to govern groundwater processes such as flow and contaminant transport
  • Provide insights to identifying critical data gaps in the current understanding of the site setting
  • Provide a quantitative basis for risk evaluations, anticipating foreseeable future conditions
  • Provide comparisons of remedial and mitigation alternatives.

The groundwater modeling team at EHS Support includes some of the most recognized and respected individuals in the industry. Combining this depth of experience with the latest software and technical tools, our modeling team provides a range of services including numerical fate and transport modeling, hydraulic control estimation, and watershed analysis.
