Subsurface Hydraulics

Underground construction and structures can have significant impacts on regional groundwater flow and quality. Dewatering is often required for underground construction and can cause settlement of nearby structures, depletion of water sources, and other issues. Underground structures such as foundations and tunnels can create barriers and pathways for groundwater flow.

Our engineers have worked on dewatering, levee, infiltration basin, and other projects that require an in-depth knowledge of subsurface hydraulics. They are trained to obtain the necessary hydrogeological data, identify potential project impacts, and use appropriate analytical techniques to facilitate design and construction efforts.
