Water Quality

wqWater quality is a term used to describe the chemical, physical, and biological characteristics of water, usually in respect to its suitability for a particular purpose. Our staff has extensive experience using and developing mathematical models to describe the fate and transport of chemicals that may compromise water quality. Our specific experience includes:

  • Development of water quality monitoring programs for streams, rivers, lakes, estuaries, discharges, groundwater, and coastal waters
  • Review of water quality standards and site-specific criteria development
  • Fate and transport modeling in rivers and lakes
  • Total maximum daily load (TMDL) analysis and review
  • Aquatic ecotoxicology risk assessments
  • Human health risk assessment evaluations
  • Chemical hazard exposure evaluations
