Client project details

Augusta County Service Authority, VA (Berry Farm Spring)

The Project

EGGI was contracted to evaluate the potential hydrologic effects of a proposed land use change within the contributing groundwater recharge area of the Berry Farm Spring. The Spring, which is currently used as a public water supply for Augusta County Service Authority (ACSA), yields in excess of 1,000 gpm.

EGGI performed a groundwater investigation that included photolineament analysis, bedrock mapping, groundwater recharge assessment, assessment of vulnerability to groundwater contamination, geophysical surveys, groundwater monitoring, installation of piezometers, and collection and analyses of soil/rock samples.

Status/Results:

The results of EGGI's investigation determined that the proposed new land use could threaten groundwater quality at the Spring unless certain restrictions were upheld.  Based on these findings, it was decided to keep the groundwater recharge area in its pristine condition and the proposed plans for converting the property to alternative land use activities were terminated.
