A Lake creation project requires a permit under Part 301 of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, which will necessitate a Hydrogeological Investigation. Lakeshore Environmental has completed numerous Hydrogeological Investigations, including an extensive Hydrogeological Investigation for a site located in Allegan County, depicted in the below photos, to predict the lake creation impact on groundwater resources. Due to the complexity of the site and the proximity of nearby sensitive receptors, a groundwater model was required to obtain a permit. Lakeshore Environmental’s team of expert hydrogeologists and environmental engineers are certified in MODFLOW Classic and MODFLOW Flex, software utilized for that purpose.
