SERVICES

Formation Environmental scientists and engineers specialize in modeling and analyzing soil, water, weather, and vegetation to create valuable geospatial insights for decision management, regulatory compliance and strategic direction.

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 inform management plans.  Our clients are irrigation and water districts, water resource planning consortiums, agricultural companies, public and municipal utilities and resource conservation organizations.
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

Our team applies scientific expertise in soil & terrain, wind modeling, watersheds, and vegetation characterization to support utility clients with environmental management of ROWs.  We inform our scientific models with field-based and remotely sensed data to help clients better understand the historical, current and future impacts of water, soil and weather on vegetation near utility assets. Utilizing LiDAR, HD Video, hyperspectral, optical and thermal imagery, we also map utility assets for ongoing operations and maintenance.

Technology

Technology

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.  Our technology team provides end-to-end solutions from data aggregation to geospatial and predictive analytics to custom visualization and reporting.

Water

Formation scientists help clients navigate some of the most critical water issues today. Our multidisciplinary team integrates regulatory and scientific expertise to inform water management decisions throughout North and South America.

Our scientists, engineers, and remote sensing professionals help clients address water issues from field to landscape scale. This includes mapping of evapotranspiration and addressing the impacts and mitigation of large-scale water transfers. Formation’s expertise also includes addressing groundwater – surface water interactions, modeling root zone water quality, evaluating groundwater dependent vegetation, and implementing workflows to calculate water demand and inform management plans.

Environment

We provide key technical and strategic support to assist in negotiation, settlement, and litigation processes for mining and other contamination sites throughout the West.

Our approach involves close communication with each of our clients 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 successfully remediation approach, settlement, or defense.

Energy

We offer customized geospatial solutions that provide clients with the analytics and tools they need to manage regulatory compliance and operational efficiency.

Formation scientists are experts at terrain analysis and vegetation characterization to support desktop review of ROW and asset proximity conditions. We specialize in UAV data acquisition utilizing ultra-high density LiDAR, thermal sensing, optical imaging, and bathymetric LiDAR to provide a rapid, cost effective approach to inspect and map energy assets.
