MEK hydrogeologists and water resources specialists have conducted detailed hydrogeological studies in different types of geological terrains worldwide. These studies usually commence with a comprehensive review of the technical literature through the collection, collation, and analysis of published and unpublished literature and data available to our consultants. Our staff may undertake additional field studies, including geophysical investigations and borehole drilling, to acquire supplementary information that may be required for in-depth understanding of the hydrogeological conditions and decision-making.
Our experiences in this sector include:
- Delineation and characterization of major aquifers and aquitards;
- Determination of the major hydrogeological parameters, such as the permeability (hydraulic conductivity) and transmissivity of the individual groundwater systems, which are relevant for the sustainable planning and management of these regional and local aquifer systems and their long-term usage; and
- Determination of groundwater flow mechanisms, preferential flow paths, and recharge and discharge areas within a given aquifer system.
MEK consultants has the expertise to model and simulate different type of aquifer systems and use the results to properly design wellfields that will stand the test of time, drastically cutting down on operational costs and ensuring the long-term sustainability of the groundwater resource and the production water well(s).
As a team, we have conducted and analyzed over 500 pumping and aquifer tests in different hydrogeological terrains. Using these test results, our team members can produce the most efficient well designs and accurately determine the most optimal pumping rates for individual wells. Additionally, through these test analyses, our team has successfully and accurately inferred relevant aquifer information, including the delineation of recharge and discharge areas, locally and regionally, within groundwater systems.
