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.

“I want to tell you how much we have enjoyed hosting your drill crew this summer. We have had work crews in the past and were a little skeptical about taking on a drilling crew with all of the stories we have heard.

I'm here to tell you that your drillers are definitely a cut about the rest. Each and every one of them we've had on the job here are fine respectful, thankful, kind, considerate, gentlemen. They are to be commended for the new image of the Alaskan Driller that they portray.

I would welcome them back at the Lodge any time, whether on work or pleasure.
Thanks again for hiring a great bunch of guys.”
John Rusyniak, Log Cabin Wilderness Lodge
