Hydrogeology - Well Field Design, Testing, and Permitting



NSN’s decades of experience in the hydrogeologic analysis of potential water supply locations makes us an expert in providing our clients with the proper well field design criteria, performance testing methods, and quantifiable data sets for successful permitting applications.  We have tested an extensive variety of well types, sizes, screen and casing designs throughout North and Central America and the Caribbean, giving us a unique perspective on the best well design to maximize production for a given geologic environment.  Some of our well field design applications include:

  • Comprehensive analysis of potential water sources and safe sustainable yield
  • Design of test wells, supply wells, injection wells, and monitor wells
  • Aquifer performance testing
  • Groundwater level monitoring
  • Groundwater modeling and impact analysis of withdrawal
  • Desalination - R/O water supply development
  • Wastewater disposal
  • Water use permitting
  • Experience with unconfined, confined, and semi-confined aquifers

NSN has worked with private development firms as well as city, county, state and federal agencies to produce optimal well field designs and successfully permit new and existing water supply systems.  Our guarantee is to provide the most efficient well field system for our client in the most cost-effective manner.
