Worthington Groundwater
Carbonate aquifers
Borehole methods
Tracer tests
Spring monitoring
Worthington Groundwater specializes in evaluating flow in limestone and dolostone (carbonate) aquifers. Understanding flow in these aquifers is particularly challenging because water flowing through the rock slowly enlarges the fractures it flows through. This process is known as karstification.

Worthington Groundwater is built around the expertise of Dr. Stephen Worthington, M.Sc., Ph.D., P.G., P. Geo., an internationally recognized expert in karst hydrogeology. He has been active in research on karst aquifers for more than 30 years. For the last ten years he has specialized in developing techniques to comprehensively characterize flow and transport in carbonate aquifers by combining borehole tests, tracer tests, and spring monitoring techniques. His consulting work in the U.S. and Canada has included water supply, water rights, wellhead protection, groundwater contamination, bedrock stability, and feasibility projects on landfills, quarries, and residential developments.
