Hydrogeology

Experience

In 2016, hydrogeological specialists Aqueon, merged with WGA after a long association partnering in the delivery of numerous reuse water supply and management projects nationally. 

With experts in hydrogeology, hydrology and other groundwater-related disciplines, WGA provides a dedicated team of professionals that can be relied upon to provide technical guidance structured to meet the challenges associated with the development of new, or expansion of existing water resources to support supply security across the built environs, irrigated horticulture, industry, and the mining sector.

By combining proven approaches with leading edge technologies WGA delivers specialised technical analyses to support water resource management decisions such as evaluation of stream-aquifer interactions, quantification of recharge rates, aquifer characterisation, integrated catchment water management and groundwater numerical modelling.

Our methodologies recognise and build on past successes, address future challenges, and are structured to enable our clients to realise future opportunities. WGA’s team has been involved in the development, design, and operational monitoring of many of Australia’s major managed aquifer recharge / aquifer storage and recovery projects over the past 15-20 years.

Our geographic information systems, and database capabilities allow us to store efficiently and effectively, retrieve, analyse, and present water resources data to technical audiences and the public.

Our team has extensive experience in the following areas of the Hydrogeology service:

  • Aquifer Hydraulic Testing
  • Bore establishment and headworks design
  • Bore rehabilitation
  • Dewatering
  • Downhole geophysics and camera interpretation
  • Drilling supervision/logging
  • Feasibility Studies
  • Integrated catchment water management
  • MAR/ASR
  • Monitoring
  • Numerical Modelling
  • Regulatory approvals
  • Surface water-groundwater Interaction
  • Water quality assessments
