HYDROGEOLOGY (groundwater)

In the 1980s the company developed its groundwater expertise into the broader field of hydrogeology, and in particular, contaminated soil and groundwater.

Environmental issues included investigating wetlands and irrigation return flows for presence of endangered species such as Chinook salmon and steelhead.  Golder delineated wetlands and conducted fish studies (snorkeling and electro-shocking) to determine the presence of fish, while also examining waterfowl breeding, endangered plant species, cultural resources, water quality, and hydrogeology.
