Groundwater Flow

Itasca has extensive experience with quantitative assessment of surface and sub-surface groundwater flow. This enables Itasca to efficiently provide clients with reliable information that is critical for attaining their operational and environmental goals as well as for navigating the complex technical, legal, and permitting aspects of water resources. Examples of groundwater flow services provided include:

  • Development of conceptual and numerical groundwater flow and transport models
  • Evaluation of origins and/or flow paths using artificial and natural chemical and isotopic tracers
  • Modeling of groundwater flow, multi-phase flow, and chemical transport
  • Simulation of groundwater flow associated with block cave mining and solution mining operations

Itasca has developed a variety of software to facilitate its consulting services, the most notable of which is the advanced groundwater flow model code, MINEDW. This software was specifically designed to address water-related issues in complex hydrogeologic environments, such as those commonly associated with mining operations. MINEDW is currently being used at many large-scale open-pit and underground mines around the world. Itasca complements hands-on field testing and instrumentation experience with these types of software tools to effectively provide comprehensive practical solutions to hydrologic and engineering problems that may arise from surface and underground mining.
