PPM provides the following wellhead protection/source water assessment services to water systems:
- Wellhead Protection Studies
- Source Water Assessments
- Contaminant Inventory
PPM was retained to conduct a Wellhead Protection Study for the Calera and Montevallo water systems in north central Alabama. The objective of the assessment was to determine the geologic and hydrogeologic setting in which the municipal wells and springs operated by the systems were located in order to develop protection strategies to protect the wells from potential contamination. The study included field mapping of stratigraphic and structural features in the area, water level mapping, dye trace studies, delineation of wellhead protection area boundaries, and identification of potential sources of contamination in the study area.
