Groundwater Monitor for Oil and Gas Development Concerns
Municipalities with oil and gas development impact concerns seek groundwater inspection and monitoring programs.
Modern Geosciences has helped numerous municipalities design their groundwater monitoring programs with regard to oil and gas development impact concerns. Modern also currently performs ongoing monitoring of groundwater for selected cities to ensure early data trends suggesting impact are identified early. Each effort is unique and requires an evaluation of existing aquifers to be disturbed, surrounding area usage, prior data collected on water quality, interaction with the operators and planned drilling and fracturing methodology. Careful attention to sample collection and field monitoring methodology is required to determine the potential short and long-term impacts.
