Ground Water Science is focused on the science and technique of ground water and how to keep it flowing. We have been providing hydrogeology, well & drain maintenance and rehabilitation planning and training since 1986 (initially as S.A. Smith Consulting Services). Our command of rock and glacial hydrogeology is second to none regionally. And our expertise in ground water system biofouling, maintenance, and rehabilitation (asset management) is recognized and in-demand across North America and beyond, including some very large ground water projects. (Learn more about some of our representative clientsand projects - the ones we can discuss - here.)
Our partners, Stuart A. Smith and Allen E. Comeskey, are certified and licensed geologists and ground water professionals with advanced degrees and over 30 years each of diverse, high-quality, hands-on professional experience. We offer an integrated understanding of hydrogeologic, biogeochemical, and well performance issues. And we have contributed to several landmark publications pertaining to drilling, well construction, biofouling analysis, and well rehabilitation.
Ground Water Science is a small firm by design. Our managing principals work directly (not filtered through field staff) with each of our clients, large or small. Our veterans are not kept in captivity, nor put out to pasture by the new wave HR hobbling our corporate colleagues, but are free to escape the office and take our expertise to the job site, regionally or worldwide, working hands-on with our colleagues in well construction, service, engineering, and water operations.
We strive to consistently deliver superior customer service by insisting that things are done the right way, by serving as advocates for our clients, and by valuing and maintaining our integrity in everything that we do. We work throughout North America and beyond, so if you think that we can help you, then please contact us.
More than being merely a sales tool, this site also includes technical resources and links to many more. And we provide training and a growing list of publications to improve your understanding of ground water and wells - which will make you a better client and well operator. So take a look around, and let's keep that water moving!
Spencerville has a high-capacity carbonate-aquifer wellfield in a politically and technically sensitive aquifer setting (a designated sole-source aquifer) in which both public water suppliers and private-well owners maintain marginal ground water supplies. Work included analysis of studies by other consultants in the area and technical liaison with the state and neighboring communities, WHPA delineation using MODFLOW, based on detailed local data collection, well capacity testing and regional aquifer-scale testing to update the numerical model of the wellfield.
