- We install monitoring wells in dikes, brownfield sites and other locations to capture data on groundwater and potential contamination.
- Our understanding of fluvial geomorphology, the interactions between streams and soil, is fundamental to our river projects.
- We use computer modeling tools such as AERMOD to integrate source pollutant emission rates, meteorological data, and terrain data and estimate pollutant concentrations at downwind receptor locations.
- Our environmental investigations are the foundation for much of our remediation work, and the first step toward cleaning up contaminated soil.
As a multi-disciplinary consulting firm with fish biologists, water resource engineers, hydrologists and geotechnical engineers, GeoEngineers has the right mix of experience and expertise to design sustainable, fish-friendly stream crossings. We begin by looking at existing conditions on either side of a stream crossing and identifying infrastructure factors that may hinder fish passage. Our team then works to integrate culverts, bridges and other crossings into a natural stream morphology that maintains consistent water velocity. Water resource engineers analyze and characterize each stream’s hydrology and hydraulics and make recommendations for grading and channel design that will provide adequate conveyance. By adding habitat features like riparian vegetation, expanded wetlands and large woody debris, our biologists and water resource engineers design sustainable river reaches that will naturally evolve and support fish reproduction over the long-term.
