George J. Gross, Project Engineer, Augusta County Service Authority, Augusta County, Virginia
"In this day and time it seems that most of the focus is directed toward negative issues rather than the positive ones. I feel that it is important to recognize the efforts that are made .... therefore, both Don Moyers (ACSA Water Superintendent) and I feel it is appropriate that you be made aware of the exceptional effort Mr. Dan Tinkham put forth during our recent well pumping tests. Mr. Tinkham was charged with a testing schedule that would have been considered ambitious under the best of conditions .... Mr. Tinkham provided a very valuable service in the way he treated and talked to the local residents. Mr. Tinkham should be commended for his poise and professionalism under extremely arduous conditions. It has been a pleasure working with Dan on this project, and we hope to be able to work with him on future projects."

"This letter is to express my great appreciation for the work you performed on our Piedmont golf course project. Your staff was always cooperative in problem solving and the hydrogeologic data/map exhibits supplied to me were very impressive. Furthermore, and most importantly, you achieved the required high yield output from selected well sites on time and within budget. It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to our continuing relationship."
Gary W. Weaver, President, Trifam Systems, Inc.
"Thanks to your expertise and skills, we've saved our water source. While others in the area continue to dig wells producing poor quality water, your studies have led us to several high quality, high production sources. We're now convinced that the geologic studies are more than worthwhile, they're essential."
Rodney W. McClain, General Manager, Stoney Creek Sanitary District, Basye, Virginia
"I would like to take this opportunity to commend and thank Emery & Garrett Groundwater, Inc. for the professional guidance provided in developing a major water source in the National Forest for the Sanitary District. The complex geology presented multiple obstacles not only in the study and hydrogeological phases, but in the test wells and production well drilling phases, as well. However, your staff’s technical expertise, coupled with good old-fashioned logic and teamwork, maximized our situation by locating a well that should provide us adequate water supply for several decades. It is truly rare to have the pleasure to work with consultants that provide such a high level of professionalism … Please be assured the Stoney Creek Sanitary District would gladly recommend Emery & Garrett Groundwater, Inc. to other municipal entities."
Paul Howard, Director of Environmental Services, Culpeper County
"I think your presentation at the Germanna Technology Center on the status of the Countywide Groundwater Study and groundwater availability in the Triassic Basin was a tremendous success. I received numerous compliments from both staff members and the public on the quality of your presentation and your responses to questions. I think it is a testament to your professionalism and expertise of your employees."
Richard E. McNear, Deputy Co. Administrator of Planning, Board of Supervisors of Fauquier County, Virginia
"Fauquier County, Virginia, is the fifth largest county in the state. As such, we have an extremely diverse and complicated upland geology that makes groundwater exploration and development very difficult. The entire county’s population base is supported by groundwater ... Emery & Garrett Groundwater has been under contract with the Authority during the past year to explore and develop groundwater in various locations in the county. We have experienced groundwater system failures in older existing communities. Emery & Garrett has been contracted because of their excellent knowledge of Eastern Geology and their expertise in scientifically developing groundwater resources that take into account not only safe yields but the economics of developing the water resource ... We have found their staff to be extremely professional, knowledgeable and they have the ‘can-do’ spirit that so many companies lack. They are the type of company you can turn the project over to and sleep well at night ... I recommend Emery & Garrett to you with complete confidence. We are now using their expertise and we will continue to use them in all our groundwater management, exploration and development."
