As populations grow and competition for water supplies increases, cooperative strategies are critical to managing limited resources.
Around the world, drinking water companies, municipalities, and individuals are becoming aware of the increased demand on water supplies. New sources of water need to be developed in areas with competing users or with limited availability.
Layne has been helping municipal, state, federal, and tribal governments prepare water resource management plans for over a half a century. Layne hydrogeologists, engineers, and scientists apply a comprehensive process to source water development that combines hydrogeologic data analysis, hydraulic modeling, and utility operation and maintenance considerations. We execute site-specific field studies to fully characterize the aquifer and design well fields that will produce the maximum sustainable water yield at the lowest total cost.
