SERVICES

The Formation Environmental team of scientists and engineers apply scientific expertise across the soil water plant climate continuum to model and analyze conditions & dependencies that inform regulatory, compliance and programmatic decision-making for clients.

Water

Water

Our scientists and engineers help clients address water issues from field to landscape scale. This includes modeling surface and groundwater flow, solute transport, evapotranspiration and addressing impacts for mitigation of overdraft, water quality issues and large-scale water transfers. Formation’s expertise also includes assessing groundwater-surface water interactions, modeling root zone water quality, characterizing groundwater dependent vegetation and implementing workflows to calculate water demand to inform management plans. ​
Environment

Environment

Formation supports clients with technical and strategic support in environmental remediation and risk management. Our approach involves close communication with stakeholders to understand and comprehensively manage both short-term and long-term environmental liabilities. Our expertise and understanding of the regulatory framework, bioaccumulative contaminants of concern, land use and other setting-related issues help clients develop a successful remediation approach, settlement, or defense.​
Energy

Energy

We support clients in strategic planning and management activities within utility corridors and energy sites. This includes analysis of multi-temporal data to isolate important trends that may inform management priorities. Our experts also work as embedded program managers to assist with vendor and contract management, program and data audits, quality assurance reviews, and to conduct vegetation-related outage forensics to provide insights for programmatic and regulatory reporting.​
Technology

Technology

Our technology team provides end-to-end solutions from data aggregation to geospatial and predictive analytics to custom visualization and reporting. Formation owns and operates a variety of state-of-the-art sensors integrated with airborne or unmanned aerial systems (UAS). We also collect field –based data such as soil characterization, water assessment, plant phenology and meteorology variables. Datasets from these disparate sources is integrated into our custom analytics and modeling tools.
