Saltwater Intrusion Modeling

Coastal aquifers around the world are increasingly stressed to meet growing demand for water. This has resulted in saltwater intrusion in coastal aquifers. Once groundwater in these aquifers is contaminated, it is difficult to restore its original quality.

TBirdie Consulting has extensive experience in variable-density modeling of aquifers contaminated by encroaching seawater. The models have been used by regulatory agencies for minimizing the rate of saltwater intrusion by optimizing wellfield operations and to assist in permitting for sustainable growth.
