Client project details

Culpeper County, VA (Countywide Groundwater Assessment)

The Project

EGGI was contracted, after a comprehensive qualifications review, to investigate the availability and protectability of groundwater resources in eight regional service areas spread throughout Culpeper County.  Initial investigations focused on evaluating geologic and hydrogeologic data, remote sensing information, and contaminant threats to groundwater quality. 

Status/Results:

 EGGI identified several significant, new bedrock aquifers – capable of yielding several million gallons per day – that had not previously been discovered or accessed. Information gained from these groundwater investigations is being used to develop a Countywide water resource development plan along with a long-term groundwater protection program. Project results were highly regarded by both County staff and the County Board of Supervisors, and the Project has received many accolades.

"I think your presentation (James Emery’s) at the Germanna Technology Center on the status of the Countywide Groundwater Study and groundwater availability in the Triassic Basin was a tremendous success.  I received numerous compliments from both staff members and the public on the quality of your presentation and your responses to questions.  I think it is a testament to your professionalism and expertise of your employees.”
