Client project details
Town of Waterville Valley, NH (Groundwater Resource Development)
After the lack of success by other consultants who, over a period of 25 years, had drilled 110+ exploratory wells with no success of finding any significant groundwater resources, EGGI was contracted by the Town of Waterville Valley to develop a new source of drinking water.
EGGI accomplished the groundwater development project through a multi-phase program of exploration and testing. The investigation included the review of geologic information generated during the drilling of 110+ test wells by "other" consulting firms, detailed geologic mapping of the glacial deposits by EGGI geologists, the collection and analysis of electrical resistivity geophysical data, and the drilling and testing of exploratory test wells.
The results of these analyses led to the successful selection of a new high-yield Production Well site located within the White Mountain National Forest. A final hydrologic report submitted to the NHDES resulted in the permitting of a production volume of 432,000 gpd (300 gpm) for the 12-inch-diameter gravel pack well installed at this location.
EGGI is aided the Town of Waterville Valley with the completion of the Town’s Water Conservation Plan and with obtaining a Special Use Permit from the National Forest Service for long-term groundwater withdrawals from the permitted production well.
