SURFACE WATER (Environmental)
Surface waters are highly susceptible to contamination from a variety of sources both above and below ground. Many cities and industries were constructed along rivers due to their uses as transportation and as a water supply for drinking and process water.
In agricultural areas rivers and streams that flow year round are an important resource for both crops and animals.
Protecting water as a resource and as an aquatic habitat is an important aspect of environmental hydrology. PELA GeoEnvironmental’s hydrogeologists and engineers specialize in the study of both ground water and surface water.
PELA’s capabilities include:
Whether you require BMPs’ to help keep surface waters clean or to determine the source of surface water pollution, PELA’s staff have the experience to get the project done.
- Sampling and analysis to determine the nature and potential sources of contamination.
- Develop Storm Water Pollution Prevention (SWPP) Plans for regulated facilities and construction sites.
- National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting.
- Developing BMP’s to mitigate runoff and siltation of surface waters from construction, commercial and agricultural sites.
