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 characterization
  • well rehabilitation
  • aquifer protection planning
  • dewatering
  • solid and liquid waste disposal impact assessment
  • groundwater recharge and budget analysis
  • artificial groundwater recharge and injection well studies
  • aquifer mapping at local and regional scales
  • surface water and groundwater interaction studies
  • groundwater flow and contaminant transport modeling

    Hydrogeologist

    • I manage groundwater supply, quality, and remediation projects, as well as contaminated sites, and environmental management. I'm experienced in mining, oil sands, water quality, and ground- water and geochemical modelling.

    • When not on the trails with my black lab named Tim, you’ll find me spending time with family and friends over a new culinary concoction or playing a tune on the guitar. I love learning new things, travelling, art, and photography.
