Organized and incorporated in June 1985 as a water resources consulting firm, John C. Halepaska and Associates, Inc provides services in mining-related hydrologic studies, surface water hydrologic studies, ground water hydrologic studies, environmental studies, water rights, adjudications, and expert testimony to mining, municipal, and industrial clients. The JCHA management team includes engineers, geologists, geochemists, and hydrologists who represent a diverse range of experience and credentials. The American Consulting Engineers Council of Colorado has twice recognized JCHA for Its outstanding project performance. In 1994, JCHA was awarded the ACEC Colorado Engineering Excellence Award for research related to the deep bedrock injection of excess surface water to create a conjunctive use project that would maximize the beneficial use of both limited surface water and ground water supplies. In 2000, JCHA was presented with an ACEC Colorado Merit Award for its research into an innovative water management project that included an off-stream surface water supply reservoir, a water reuse plan associated with wastewater treatment, and deep well injection. In addition to being active in professional societies, JCHA personnel have also given presentations to serve organizations, planning departments, water authorities, and at professional seminars and conferences. Projects in which JCHA has been involved and expert opinions of JCHA personnel solicited by news agencies have been regularly featured in news articles. We have extensive experience in providing surface and ground water-related services throughout the United States and internationally, including the Middle East, Canada, Australia, Central and South America. We pride ourselves on providing timely, cost effective services that are specifically tailored to your needs.
