The assessment of injuries and natural resource damages associated with groundwater contamination can be especially challenging, especially in the context of injuries that do not involve the closure of public or private water supply wells. IEc is unmatched in its experience developing groundwater damage claims that are consistent with state policy and regulation, while remaining rooted in the economic literature that describes the value of this important resource to the public.

We have applied our expertise at more than 40 sites in 18 states and territories through engagements that range from the estimation of property value changes attributable to groundwater contamination, to technical support for the adjudication of an aquifer allocation dispute between neighboring states, to the development of state-specific groundwater damage assessment methodologies.
