Client project details

City of Staunton, VA (Gardner Spring)

The Project

Gardner Spring produces in excess of 5 MGD of water and serves as a significant source of drinking water for the City of Staunton, Virginia. To protect such a valuable resource from potential pollution sources, the City of Staunton hired EGGI – as a sub-contractor to Wiley & Wilson, Inc. – to perform a preliminary hydrogeologic study of the Spring.

EGGI mapped the bedrock geology and cataloged the karst features in the vicinity of the Spring in an effort to perform a preliminary delineation of the Spring's watershed. In addition, EGGI completed bedrock fracture assessments, contaminant threat inventories, and evaluated the discharge and chemistry of the surface water and springs in the region.

Status/Results:

EGGI provided the City with a preliminary delineation of the Spring’s recharge contribution area along with recommendations on how to best protect groundwater quality within the watershed area.
