Hydroelectric

Alaska Earth Sciences provides geologic services essential to the development of hydroelectric resources in Alaska.  This includes mapping and geologic characterization of hydro sites, seismic studies for dam foundations, drilling of dam abutments for engineering and design, surficial studies for material site identification and road alignments, and natural hazards assessments. 

Alaska Earth Sciences has supported the development of hydroelectric projects including the Tyee Lake lake-tap, tunnel design in Southeast Alaska, and the Terror Lake dam and tunnel project on Kodiak Island.

“So far the drillers have averaged 100 ft a day which is better than I have experienced on any other projects in this part of the Alaska Range. Your guys have gone to great lengths to maximize recovery in the mineralized structures.” Sam Dashevsky, Northern Associates
