Well Fields + Reservoirs Experience
Aquifer Testing and Well Field Development
Fort Madison, Iowa
The City of Fort Madison desired improvements and expansion of its existing water supply and treatment facilities. Groundwater from the Mississippi River alluvial aquifer was the preferred option to supply 6.0 MGD, which could increase ultimately to 9.0 MGD. HR Green conducted preliminary research of the geology and hydrogeology of a 23 square mile area
Water System Evaluation
The City of Palo is a town of approximately 900 people which had no city-wide public drinking water distribution system prior to the flood of June 2008.
Water Purification Plant Filter Expansion
Sioux Falls, SD
The City of Sioux Falls Water Purification Plant (WPP) provides potable water for the greater Sioux Falls metro area. Master planning by previous consultants revealed a need for increased capacity to meet future water demands. Several “bottlenecks” were identified within the WPP treatment processes, and one of the most critical was the filtration process.
