Client project details

City of Roswell, GA (Groundwater Exploration & Development)

The Project

Based upon EGGI's successful groundwater development projects completed in north Georgia, and its proven success at finding and developing new groundwater in neighboring Cobb County, EGGI was contracted by the City of Roswell to explore for and develop groundwater resources within a half-mile of their existing water distribution system. Groundwater resources will be used to augment their existing surface water supply source. Such groundwater resources are becoming increasingly valuable as the Greater Atlanta region faces ever more challenging water supply issues.

Utilizing a multiple phased groundwater exploration and development approach, EGGI scientists were able to identify favorable groundwater development areas despite the highly developed nature of the study area. Detailed geophysical surveys were conducted in selected areas that served to locate a number of exploratory test well sites.

Status/Results:

 Mike Leonard, Water Operations Manager for the City (and President of the American Water Works Association (AWWA)), monitored EGGI's progress closely and was extremely pleased when one of the exploratory wells had an airlift yield of over 400 gpm. Completion of long-term pumping tests on this well has shown that it has a safe yield potential to supply 5,000,000 gallons per month to augment existing water sources and to meet peak demands.
