The availability of reliable, safe water supplies is crucial to the health and livelihood of communities throughout the world, particularly in semi-arid environments. With experts in hydrology, hydrogeology, and related disciplines, DBS&A provides technical guidance that can be relied upon to ensure optimal development, use and management of groundwater and surface water resources.
DBS&A conducts specialized technical analyses to support water resources management decisions such as evaluation of stream-aquifer interactions, quantification of recharge rates, aquifer characterization, and computer modeling. Additionally, our broad environmental expertise allows us to draw on other specialties, such as cleanup of groundwater contamination, that are relevant to impacted or threatened public supplies.
Our graphic design, geographic information systems, and database capabilities allow us to efficiently and effectively store, retrieve, analyze, and present water resources data to technical audiences and the public.
This animation depicts the effects of drought on Elephant Butte Reservoir during 2001 and 2002. The reservoir stores water both for irrigation in the Lower Rio Grande Valley and to be delivered to Texas and Mexico under the Rio Grande Compact. This animation was presented to the New Mexico State Legislature to demonstrate the severe impact of drought on the state’s water resources. Surface water extents were derived from historical aerial photos.
