Hydrogeology

Expertise & Experience

Water is a limiting growth factor for many communities and land developments, and groundwater is an important resource. Hydrogeology is the study of the movement and distribution of groundwater in the Earth’s crust. The study of the interaction between groundwater movement and geology can be quite complex and requires specialized expertise. Hydrodynamics understands this complexity, and has the diverse technical expertise and years of experience needed to characterize, develop, and protect groundwater resources. The cornerstone of our technical leadership is our hands-on experience in finding and developing new groundwater sources.

Dr. Bredehoeft is a world-recognized expert in hydrogeology with 45 years experience in both research and high-level hydrogeology project management. He is the author of more than 100 research papers on groundwater. Dr. Bredehoeft managed the entire water research program of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Michael King has been a Principal Hydrogeologist on major groundwater development projects for the past 36 years. Mr. King was a partner in a water well drilling company and was responsible for permitting, drilling, testing, and operating over 500 water wells.

Hydrodynamics has completed over 20 groundwater resource basin studies. We have developed numerical groundwater models for nuclear waste transport and inter-basin groundwater resource analysis. We developed 10 natural springs as sources of bottled water and completed over 200 water supply wells.

Hydrodynamics has become a technical leader in the spring water industry, having tackled some of the unique challenges of compliance with FDA spring water regulations. By working with spring owners and regulatory agencies, Hydrodynamics developed a Unified Approach to Spring FDA Compliance.
