Water Resource Development & Management

EWMA provides wide range of water resource development and management services for public clients, private clients, site owners, developers and golf course management clients. These services include Hydrogeologic Investigations, Watershed and Aquifer Management, Groundwater Supply Development and Support Services. Hydrogeologic Investigations range from subsurface characterization to water use inventories to aquifer and basin yield assessments. Watershed and Aquifer Management services include monitoring of groundwater levels and streamflows, water conservation plans, wellhead protection area studies, and wetlands and flood plain delineation. Groundwater Supply Development services involve well site selection, design, and installation, aquifer testing and evaluation, groundwater quality analysis, and well rehabilitation and yield improvement. In additional to these services, we also provide Support Services to developers and landowners who are seeking to secure access to water resources. These services include expert testimony, claims evaluation, ordinance planning and development support.

The ultimate goal concerning water resource development and management is often obtaining a Water Allocation Permit (WAP) from governmental agencies. EWMA has the experience and know-how to perform all the steps necessary to prepare and submit a Water Allocation Permit (WAP) to the appropriate parties. We also provide client support services once a WAP has been submitted to ensure regulators’ questions are answered in a technically appropriate and timely manner.

Having EWMA as a team member helps facilitate and seamlessly manage the overall process.


  • How surety bonds expand post-remediation care options to meet financial assurance requirements

    Earlier in 2019, the New Jersey legislature approved updates to the 2009 Site Recovery Reform Act (SRRA), a suite of improvements known collectively as SRRA 2.0.

  • Tackling post-remediation care in New Jersey

    Environmental remediation projects are rarely a one-and-done undertaking. A site may need to be monitored and maintained long after regulatory agency closure, if the active remediation did not achieve the most stringent cleanup standards.

  • Before you excavate, explore compliance attainment

    Developers may not know that there’s more than one way to tackle a soil remediation project. Many assume that this kind of cleanup calls for a total excavation, carting off truckloads of contaminated soil to be cleaned or replaced entirely. However, for some projects, such an invasive and labor-intensive process may not be necessary.

  • Advancing Complex Brownfields Redevelopment, Made Simple

    Decades of unregulated, uncontrolled and poor environmental practices have led to millions of acres of “brownfields” in the U.S., properties which must be properly remediated before they are repurposed or redeveloped. These properties come in all shapes and sizes, affected by a vast array of contaminants associated with industrial operations. What is a brownfield, and what makes it different from other types of contaminated sites?
