Robert Anderson, LHG, CWRE

Bob Anderson is a Senior Principal Hydrogeologist with more than 30 years of experience focused on water resources development and management for clients in the western United States. His technical expertise includes hydrologic characterization, aquifer characterization, groundwater and surface water interaction, probability-based analysis, surface and borehole geophysics, and flow system modeling.

Examples of Bob’s broad ranging project experience include regional groundwater supply development projects in the Pacific Northwest ranging from 5 to 40 million gallons per day (MGD), groundwater exploration and development in remote areas of Alaska, groundwater recharge and aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) projects, and various hydrogeologic characterization projects at mining sites in the southwestern United States. Bob has conducted geophysical surveys throughout the world for various purposes primarily using electrical and electromagnetic methods. He managed and participated in multiple watershed-scale water resources assessments across the state of Washington, including many projects in the Columbia River Basin. These assessments were required in response to state legislation requiring a comprehensive evaluation of water supply, water rights, and water quality. Several of his projects involved developing integrated models of groundwater-surface water interactions.  He also managed the water quality components of a complex hydroelectric relicensing project on the Spokane River that included hydrodynamic water quality analysis of this complex lake, reservoir and river system. The State of Washington invited Bob as a member of a technical advisory group examining the capture of surface water by wells.
