Hydrologic Investigations

Hydrologic investigations cover a range of issues and locations to provide reimbursable customers with specific research or monitoring to address management or regulatory goals. For example, the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities have the need to monitor bridges for scour around piers. Real-time scour monitoring equipment has been installed at a number of sites and two-dimensional hydrodynamic models are being calibrated to predict scour at differing flow conditions. The National Park Service has wide-ranging needs for inventory and monitoring of the hydrologic system with a specific emphasis on baseline water-quality conditions. The Matanuska-Susitna Borough Planning Department needs a greater understanding of the interaction between ground water and lakes, and the effects of rapidly expanding development on their water resources.
