Soil Hydraulic Properties

The relationship between soil and water is a complex one and must be understood in order to predict their role in the other’s ability to flourish. Before you can build water management systems such as drainage pipes and irrigation systems, you need to understand the hydraulic properties of the water. At Duraroot, our team of scientists use soil hydraulic property data to assess the potential outcome of soil, and come up with solutions to treat it. For expert opinions from qualified soil scientists, contact the team at Duraroot today.

Predictive Modeling Systems for Soil Hydraulics Essential

We use site-specific data, soil modeling software and spreadsheet-based platforms to accurately model the soil hydraulics in a defined area. This allows us to predict impacts of resource activity, including runoff from waste facilities, vadose zone filtration and water outflow to adjacent groundwater systems. While testing can be done directly in a lab by gathering physical samples of the soil, it is more time consuming and expensive than the use of modeling software.

Monitoring of Soil Hydraulic Properties Improves System Operation

Monitoring soil hydraulic properties such as chemical and physical composition allows us to make on-going adjustments to the project. This practice improves efficiency and ensures the soil-based system is operating how we expect. Proper monitoring also promotes environmental compliance and protection, which our team at Duraroot does not take lightly. We pride ourselves on our ability to formulate plans in accordance to permitting and compliance laws, without ever stepping outside the boundaries of what is acceptable in the eyes of the government.

Physical Testing and Soil Evaluations Completed by Experts

As briefly mentioned before, we can conduct physical tests of soil to evaluate water flow and constituent movement. This testing can help refine estimates and identify the most limiting soil constituent based on the goals of your project. Though it takes more time, it gives us the most comprehensive view of the soil. We also perform soil chemistry evaluations to identify baseline and on-going soil issues, which is another way for us to improve operational efficiency.
