Recovery Well Placement
Providing quality professional geologic related advice and services to the Office of Land Quality (OLQ), other IDEM programs, state agencies, U.S. EPA, consultants, and the public.
Geological Services determines groundwater flow parameters including contaminant travel times and directions; effectiveness of monitoring well networks (including compliance with IDNR well installation rules), and evaluates the interactions of contaminated soils with groundwater to determine soil and ground water remediation system effectiveness. Geological Services staff explore sites for features which impact contaminant migration (e.g. karst, sediments, bedrock, and topography). The section staff develops and interprets technical guidance and assists enforcement when needed.
Office of Land Quality programs include:
