Yossi Bar Profile
Geo-water.com offers a wide range of services to clients in the fields of Water, Energy, Transportation and Construction projects in Israel and abroad. The company has more than 30 years of experience in Hydrogeology, Environmental and Engineering Geology, including projects of tunneling, groundwater exploration and development, construction dewatering, feasibility studies for dam design, production and observation well drilling, sinkhole and karst risk and impact investigations, geochemical groundwater tracing and mixing analyses, mine tailings dams design and monitoring and groundwater contamination risk evaluation.
The services offered include identifying and solving water intrusion problems to houses, foundations, tunnels and construction projects. Hydrogeological feasibility studies, scoping evaluations, hydrological design and implementation programs are based on a wide range of tools: Air photo investigations, geological mapping, field surveying, aquifer testing, previous research works, groundwater level and salinity data, geochemical analyses, spring discharge measurements and geotechnical investigations.
Groundwater supply projects in various countries are challenging. Geo-water.com's approach is based on multi discipline practice and phased investigation. The first phase - desk study includes communications and understanding of the client's requirements, the hydrogeological conditions and the data available. This helps to identify additional data and information needed to be collected in a field investigation and observation well drilling. This field hydrogeological investigation and the following hydrogeological modelling helps to identify resources and to locate and design cost effective production wells.
Successful projects are based on cooperation and team work. This includes the client's crew, engineering companies and state agencies. In many development projects the progress to engineering design must include preparations of application documents for permits, for drilling, for groundwater pumping and for disposal permits.
The quality of groundwater is deteriorating in many locations around the world. The drop of groundwater levels and available supply quantities is another significant indication for problematic future of drinking and irrigation water supply networks. Global warming has a negative impact that must be monitored and challenged. Adequate action plans to monitor and secure water resources must be considered. Geo-water.com offers services of detailed monitoring and evaluation of water balance and water resources: rivers, wells, springs, aquifers, reservoirs, utilities, landfills, waste water processing plants and disposal networks.
