Water Quality Services

As one of our country’s most important resources, water, needs to remain protected during any energy development program. Surface and groundwater quality management is required in order to remain compliant with state and federal regulatory requirements. CGRS has decades of experience designing and implementing effective strategies to ensure compliance. Services such as groundwater monitoring plan preparation, baseline groundwater sampling, monitoring well installation and permitting, surface water sampling, and NPDES permitting are select examples of what our expertise covers. From production facilities to water treatment facilities to salt water injection and disposal facilities, CGRS has the experience to ensure your water compliance needs.

Baseline Groundwater Sampling
Per Colorado COGCC requirements 609 and 318A, baseline and subsequent groundwater sampling is required in order to ensure that domestic water sources are not impacted during well installation and development activities. CGRS can evaluate and determine what domestic water sources may require sampling prior to your drilling date. We can complete water sampling activities and report findings per state requirements. Alternatively, CGRS may be able to use pre-existing water sample data to meet your baseline sampling requirement to provide a more cost-effective baseline sampling solution.

Groundwater Management Plans
Groundwater management plans are required by certain counties and municipalities, based on the type of energy facility that you operate. The purpose of a groundwater management plan is to provide details supporting the effective monitoring and management of facility operations. Generally, the plan outlines specific groundwater monitoring points, groundwater sampling analyses completed, and frequency of the sampling program.

Monitoring Well Installation and Sampling
The proper permitting and documentation of groundwater monitoring well installation is important to the success of your groundwater management program. CGRS has vast experience identifying key soil characteristics, water depth indicators and soil quality during the drilling process. These and other soil characteristics allow for the complete understanding of subsurface soil conditions and the interaction with groundwater and any site related contaminants.
