Groundwater

Modern demands call for water protection and sustainable use of freshwater resources. Our partner, Iceland GeoSurvey, possesses expertise in this realm and has been advising waterworks, fish farms and bottling companies on freshwater and groundwater research. GSE has also been involved in work on the demarcation of water protection areas and the monitoring of groundwater pollution.

Moreover, Iceland GeoSurvey has experience in exploration for other types of water, such as for industrial uses and protection.

In collaboration with Iceland GeoSurvey, GSE carries out mapping of water drainage, groundwater systems and groundwater flow where the interaction of surface and subsurface flow and rock formations is outlined. Hydrogeology maps are used for planning, environmental assessments and construction.

We measure the discharge of boreholes and springs and performs chemical analyses of potable water and other freshwater resources. GSE also has experience in exploration for other types of water, such as for industrial uses and fire protection, warm water and brine.

Our main services related to groundwater include:

- Exploration for freshwater & aquifers- Siting of boreholes- Design of boreholes and wells- Assessments of water requirements- Analysis of water quality- Measurements of pollution- Advice on waterworks structures
