Aquifer Evaluation and Ground Water Modeling for a New Water Supply near Enon, Ohio

The Village of Enon sought a new production well location to augment its existing well field. A farm field located approximately 3,000 feet southwest of the existing well field was identified as the best candidate for development. The property had several challenges including a small wetland and an active railroad line between it and the village water treatment plant. Terran, in conjunction with LBJ, Inc., assisted the Village through the process of exploration, permitting, design, negotiation and acceptance of the property for municipal water supply development. Terran conducted the field exploration using a combination of rotosonic drilling, piezometers and test wells to characterize the hydrogeologic setting. Groundwater modeling was conducted to evaluate well placement, production impacts, and potential capture of contaminants from a manufacturing facility in the area. Through the team effort and sound ground water science, the new well site was approved by Ohio EPA and brought into service.
