Hydrology Expert Witnesses
Water is one of earth’s most important natural resources. If there was no water, there would be no life on earth. Every day in the United States, it is estimated that each person uses 80-100 gallons of water, and the average family uses 300 gallons per day. That is an estimated total of 322 billion gallons of water used every day in the United States. Even though seventy-one percent of the earth’s surface is covered by water, it is not always in the right place, at the right time, in the right quality. Less than one percent of the earth’s water is appropriate for human use. Hydrology is the study of the amount and quality of water being stored on the earth’s surface and underneath the surface. It also studies the occurrence and movement of water, and its connection with the living and material elements of the environment. Our hydrology expert witnesses, speakers, and consultants work within the fields of earth science, civil engineering, hydrogeology, environmental science, geology, environmental engineering, and more. They have extensive experience dealing with issues concerning plant feasibility, contamination, groundwater salinity, geothermal energy, radon in groundwater, water sustainability, water resources, environmental pollution management, surface hydrology, drainage basin management, water chemistry, and watershed hydrology, to name a few. Our hydrology experts are prolific authors and have provided litigation support in a variety of cases worldwide. Also see the related keyword group of hydro engineering.
