Comprehensive solutions for water resource management
Scientific and engineering expertise in remediation and risk management
Tools and analysis for regulatory compliance and operational efficiency
Data collection, modeling, analytics and visualization
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.
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.
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. Our remote sensing experts and data scientists are also sensor agnostic and able to model and analyze data from a variety of sources.
Our remote sensing experts, data scientists, GIS professionals, and programmers collaborate with clients to provide custom analytics, modeling tools and client portals that integrate into their operational workflow. Formation operates the state-of-the-art Vapor 55 UAV, equipped with ultra-high density LiDAR, optical imagery, thermal or bathymetric sensors.
