Hydrogeology

Hydrogeology is the combination of traditional geology with the sophisticated analytical methods required to understand and predict the complex processes involved in groundwater movement and subsurface fate and mobility of chemical substances. Understanding site geology is an essential first step in any assessment of groundwater supply or contamination migration.
