Example Work Project
A Town requested HydroQuest to conduct a review of a proposed sand and gravel mining operation. Permitting of the mine would have resulted in removal of sediments through which aquifer recharge occurs AND in the removal of a significant portion of the high-yield aquifer itself. This aquifer requires protection because it is the single most important water resource in the Town and will likely be integral to the Town.s future development. In addition, the mine operation would adversely impact the water supply of a nearby, existing, housing development.
