INC. (AVI) was created to address business, environmental and community
issues using scientifically rigorous geology, hydraulics, physics and chemistry. Aquifer means "water bearing" from its
Latin roots and represents the entity and resource so closely tied to our
work. Substituting "ver" means "water truth",
reflecting the accuracy and rigor we bring to our area of specialization.
AVI specializes in managing and maximally utilizing technical data from a variety of scientific and
engineering fields. Peruse our site to see how the scientific process can
answer real-world questions about property management, resources, contamination, risk,
liability and cost optimization. Unlike some consulting groups that
need an ongoing work backlog to sustain their infrastructure, our small
size allows us to be completely detached from the majority of project spending,
freeing us to aggressively question and conserve costs. It is an unfortunate
reality in our field that many of the costs sustained by businesses and
communities have very little return on that investment. AVI strives
to fix that, it is our reason for being.
To draw a parallel to the medical
field, a high quality diagnosis is generally what leads to a high quality
prognosis. A poor diagnosis will rarely lead to a good cure. The parallel
in hydrogeologic projects is the use of state-of-the-science approaches to
evaluate data and conditions to accurate opinions. We find solutions for
our clients through focus, efficiency, skills and knowledge
quantification may not always tell you what is right, but it sure the heck will tell you what is
wrong! The power is both in the process and the answers
generated. Flexible thinking is the key element to successful
AVI's goal is to
manage, understand and communicate complex scientific and engineering
information within and beyond the water resources and environmental
spectrum. By applying rigorous and defensible
science, we create predictive and interactive products that assist in managing
environmental issues. AVI specializes in computing technologies
which allow information management and spatial analysis tools to be applied in a virtual real-time
environment. We develop
interactive tools to allow clients to make informed technical decisions having social and
AVI was founded in 1992 by G.D. Beckett, and incorporated as a Chapter C corporation in the
State of California in early 1994. We are presently a Utah-based
Corporation, with our main office in Park City.
The company was created to meet a need for predictive
application of science for groundwater and environmental applications.
AVI's services include lab and field data collection, data
management and manipulation and groundwater/environmental modeling.
We are focused on providing
demonstrable economic value from applied sciences. It
is in the technical details that this value to businesses and communities
may be found.
AVI has a long
history of technical publishing and conducting training courses nationally
and beyond. While our work is of the highest technical caliber, our
ability to communicate that work to lay audiences is one of our strongest
assets. Solving technical problems is of little value if those solutions
cannot be communicated and acted upon in simple pragmatic ways.
