Turn-Key Water Resource Projects for Public Water
Systems (PWS) and non-PWS
I can economically complete all phases of installing a
new water source (well or surface source). I will tailor fit a program to
meet your needs be it for a PWS, industrial, agriculture, or private well.
Services provided include put are not limited to:
Hydrogeologic Evaluation to locate your well in optimum
place for highest production and optimum water quality. After locating the
site, I will design the well to the local hydrogeology. Having geologic
experience in most western states, and being familiar with the challenges we
face in the west with meeting water use I will use all resources available
to ensure that your source will be a “long term” source not a short term
Preliminary Evaluation Report (PER) and Engineering
Plans and Specifications Governing the Drilling of your new well. The PER
and Engineering Plans are required by the state of Utah prior to the
drilling of your well.
Preparing drilling ,well construction, development, and
pump testing specifications and putting your well out to bid.
Provide site management of project. Depending on the
location and type of drilling, a on site representative will be there to
geologically log all of the cuttings and collect all hydrogeologic
information during drilling. Drilling is very expensive and you want to get
the most out of the data as possible.
Organize and conduct development and pump testing of
well with a pump rig. This also includes pump test analysis and reporting
of all data to be used later in the Drinking Water Source Protection Plan.
A Drinking Water Source Protection Plan (DWSP), will
need to be completed prior to bringing the well into your PWS.
Design of pumping system for well and other post
Well and Water Right Due Diligence for real estate
Buying or selling a home that has a private well? I can
conduct a Due Diligence on the well and water rights. Many homes that have
private wells do not have water rights that are in good standing with the Utah
State Division of water rights, I can tell you if you will have any problems
with the right. I will also sample the well to ensure the water meets State
and Federal drinking water standards and is safe for use in the home.
Water Right Evaluation
Want to know what water rights are associated with the
land you are selling or buying? Coupled with a local team of water right
specialists I can put together the full water right picture on your property.
If additional water rights are needed or you have excess water rights I can
put you in touch with a professional that will help you find a party to
purchase or sell your water right.
Contaminated groundwater delineation and design of
contaminant extraction system.
Having worked on all sizes of contaminated groundwater
problems; from Kennecott Utah Coppers 25 square miles of contamination of low
pH, high sulfate water, to coliform contamination in private wells. I can
economically asses your groundwater issue and provide all services through
Exploration and Property Evaluation of precious and
base metals, aggregate and industrial minerals.
Having worked in the mining field for many years I am
very familiar with all aspects of mining from grass roots exploration to mine
closure and all phases in between.
