Willowstick is a geophysical technology company that provides quick and non-intrusive technologies in three dimensions to identify, map and model preferential groundwater connection paths. Like an angiogram that enables medical personnel to see blood flow inside the body, the Willowstick method is able to quickly identify groundwater flow paths. This technique is a powerful tool for finding seeps through or under engineered embankments, leaks through inaccessible liners or for finding preferential flow paths of groundwater.
Groundwater characterization is often a frustrating experience. It isn’t easy to understand what is happening with the water beneath our feet. When boreholes fail to provide answers to important questions a typical approach is to drill more holes. In the long term, this approach is cost-prohibitive and may not provide the necessary answers.
Willowstick suggests a more practical approach in characterizing groundwater. Augment data from existing wells with a Willowstick geophysical investigation specifically designed to characterize groundwater flow paths. This approach provides a more comprehensive model of the location and depth of preferential groundwater flow paths. A Willowstick investigation typically identifies specific areas that warrant further investigation. The early application of a Willowstick investigation saves time and money by eliminating unproductive remediation efforts.
The Willowstick method has been ground-proofed in projects completed throughout the world. Willowstick enjoys a high rate of returning customers many of which are recognized as leaders within their respective industries. For more information, please visit us at www.willowstick.com.
