Groundwater and Wells

HAL has considerable expertise in theĀ investigation, modeling, and development of groundwater.

Representative projects:

Bluffdale Independence Well

Bluffdale Independence Well

The City of Bluffdale revamped an old irrigation well and built a new well house to match the newly constructed apartments surrounding it. The project included a temporary pumping setup and a temporary water right to immediately being operating until permanent arrangements could be made.

CWP Wells 8, 9, and 10

CWP Wells 8, 9, and 10

HAL was recently selected to design three new deep, large-diameter wells for the Central Utah Water Conservancy District, extending HAL’s role into the next phase of the largest groundwater development project in Utah.

CWP High-Head Wells Project

CWP High-Head Wells Project

The Central Utah Water Conservancy District contracted HAL to plan, design, and manage a groundwater development project that will supply water to some 160,000 people. The project is the largest of its kind in Utah, with some of the state’s largest and deepest wells.

Magna Water District Groundwater Management Program

Magna Water District Groundwater Management Program

HAL assisted Magna Water District with Phase 1 of a Groundwater Management Program to better manage the Barton and Haynes well fields. The study included research and evaluation of historical water quality trends and established prioritized pumping to minimize impact from perchlorate and other water quality challenges. The study also established safe withdrawal rates from the aquifer. Three-dimensional groundwater modeling was used to characterize groundwater flow patterns and predict impacts from pumping alternatives.

Central Utah Water Conservancy District Remaining Safe Yield

Central Utah Water Conservancy District Remaining Safe Yield

HAL completed the Remaining Safe Yield Report for Central Utah Water Conservancy District to characterize aquifer conditions, recharge sources, and aquifer discharges within the Juab Valley and Southern Utah Valley. This study included detailed reconnaissance of historical and existing well withdrawals along with future withdrawal projections. Three-dimensional groundwater modeling was used to characterize groundwater flow patterns and predict impact from projected withdrawals. Stakeholder involvement was critical for establishing historical, existing, and projected future withdrawals.
