EGGI implements an innovative approach to solving water supply demands while at the same time improving the local environment

The City of Dover, New Hampshire has contracted Emery & Garrett Groundwater, Inc. to investigate the use of a 12-inch-diameter gravel pack well to provide potable water resources to the City while at the same time lower damaging high water levels that have occurred in Willand Pond. Such high water levels have flooded basements, recreational park areas, roads, and valuable shoreline. Hydrogeologic data collected during a 90-day pumping test program and long-term water level monitoring program has been incorporated into a numerical model of the Willand Pond Aquifer to aid in the evaluation of the potential yield of the well and the hydraulic connection between the well, the Pond, and the elevated groundwater levels in the local community. The results of this study will lead to the development and permitting of a new groundwater supply that will supplement potable water resources to the City while at the same time maintaining safe and environmentally responsible Pond and groundwater levels in the local community.
