The study of ground water continues to be an evolving science and a central theme for all environmental assessments. Ground water forms an integral part of the water cycle, discharging to wetlands and streams as well as recharging aquifers. There is a dichotomy between ground water's role as a renewable natural resource and it's natural heritage function.

Azimuth evaluates site-specific ground water conditions by first defining the physical geological conditions and their hydraulic characteristics. These conditions control the direction and rate of flow, as well as the ground water quantity and quality. These factors are important regardless of whether the assessment is addressing a new municipal well supply, an ARA license application, property development influences, landfill impacts, contaminants from a brownfield site, evaluations of potential road salt impacts from highway applications or a peer review of another consultant's technical report.

Azimuth and our environmental professionals are certified by the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario (APGO) and the Professional Engineers of Ontario (PEO).
