Water Supply & Resource Planning

The critical nature of water supply necessitates careful selection, management, and planning.

We understand there are no compromises when it comes to the accessibility and safety of a water supply source. We partner with you to find, develop, and manage clean and reliable options.

LaBella develops water supply wells for municipalities and private clients in all types of geologic settings. We conduct pumping tests to determine the safe, sustainable yield of wells and aquifers. Our clients appreciate the certainty of our well designs, the care we take during performance testing, and our readiness to expand sources or support well redevelopment efforts. LaBella’s water resource engineers can specify water quality treatment as needed and prepare all necessary engineering design documents.

LaBella also offers unique water resource evaluation and planning services. This extends to local and regional expertise with groundwater, surface water, and their interaction. Planners, towns, counties, and state agencies rely on LaBella for such important resource decision-making support and knowledge.
