If property owners do not like the outcome of the investigation, they may sue under a Takings proviso. Takings issues are not something just for attorneys, but something that should also be familiar to a hydrogeologist. Your greatest security in a courtroom situation is to be able to demonstrate that best possible practices have been used in the evaluation. Part of these practices include field studies and field data from which interpretations are made. As a field hydrogeologist, keep in mind the big picture and realize that your work may be revisited in court.

Geologists thought they could identify the location of a caldera ring, from surface mapping. 6 km) across. The concept was that at sufficient depth, fracturing and heat would allow the production of a significant geothermal production well. The proposed purpose of the well was for power generation and heating. 4-m) drill pipe. 1 cm) in diameter at the total depth of 10,380 ft (3,164 m).
