Governments are continuing to expand legislation dealing with how to protect precious water resources. Both surface water (lakes, ponds, rivers and creeks) and groundwater (wells) are not strictly controlled to avoid damage to these resources. A&A has a long history of performing local and regional groundwater studies for municipalities and private industry. With its well technician license and drilling equipment, A&A can install the groundwater monitoring wells that are needed to complete these types of studies. Consulting chemists and hydrogeologists on staff can provide expert knowledge to interpret the findings of the water analysis programs and to prepare annual reports for submission to the MOECC.
