MODELING SERVICES FOR SURFACE WATER AND GROUNDWATER MANAGEMENT
Client: Collier County Engineering and Natural Resources Department/Pollution Control
Year of Completion: 2016
Collier County was in the process of updated its Wellhead Protection Ordinance and needed to update the modeling tools and methods used to define the Wellhead Protection Zones. The County also was concerned about the storm water collection and drainage system potentially contributing pollutants to potable water supply wells completed in the Surficial Aquifer System. The purpose of the project was to develop an updated groundwater model for the County, define current groundwater capture zones for the specified wellfields, assess contributions from the surface water network and recommend new wellhead protection zones for each wellfield.

LAGO provided Collier County with preliminary Wellhead Protection Zones for 10 potable water supply wellfields in the County. Each protection zone considers the potential contributions from the surface water drainage network. The County is currently using the results from this study in preparation for updating the County’s Wellhead Protection Ordinance.
