Our training programs are based on years of practical consulting and contracting in the water resources and environmental consulting industries. Where we team with outside experts for training purposes, we select them based on their hands on experience with the topic they are covering. All those years of practical experience means we know what works - and what doesn't - so we go beyond the theory to give our clients real tools they can use in their everyday operations.
The training, conferences and webinars provided by the Groundwater Guy are predicated on the idea that we could bring together and share the wealth of information that has been accumulated by hydrogeologists, engineers, water district managers/technicians and drillers on water resources development, state of the art well design, water supply well diagnostics and well rehabilitation/repair. Sharing best management practices can result in better well design, improved water supply operations and extended lifespans for water supply wells.
Our training programs have grown out of the experience gained through our consulting services at Southeast Hydrogeology, PLLC. Although our training is designed to share our experience and teach you how to take on various aspects of water resources development and water well management, for those who need more help or have complex problems, we provide consulting services ranging from just enough to get you "over the hump" to full service consulting.
