Hydrogeology

Associated's team of hydrogeologists offers a broad range of expertise in groundwater supply assessment and development, and aquifer capacity and protection studies.  Our team excels at crafting practical strategies to solve a variety of groundwater-related problems. Groundwater supply development for municipal, industrial, recreational, and agricultural clients is a major focus of our work. Canada-wide and international experience means that our team has a comprehensive understanding of the differing regulatory frameworks in these jurisdictions and how best to apply appropriate solutions.

Our services include:

  • groundwater exploration and test-production well programs
  • aquifer testing
  • groundwater quality and quantity characterization
  • well rehabilitation
  • aquifer protection planning
  • dewatering and depressurization
  • hydrogeologic risk and impact assessment

    Senior Aquatic Scientist

    • The science of water is my passion. I like sharing and applying this knowledge creatively to answer questions and help solve issues around surface water quality.

    • Being active outside, good food and company make me happy. I enjoy skiing, running, walking, biking and camping with the family, dog, and friends, and traveling to my native Europe.
