A Letter from the CEO:

Hargis + Associates (H+A) has grown into the successful consulting firm it is today by developing and maintaining the highest levels of expertise in hydrogeology and engineering. For over 40 years we have delivered that expertise to our clients with steadfast integrity in a demanding and ever-changing regulatory environment, winning and maintaining the respect of regulators at all levels of government while working seamlessly with clients to navigate a maze of regulatory and legal requirements.

I started this firm in 1979 and have dealt with the harsh realities of rapid growth and retrenchment in the environmental consulting industry. I am very proud that one of the defining characteristics of H+A is our ability to maintain long-term relationships with so many clients—-some of them for more than 30 years! We have done this by offering them a consistently higher level of scientific and professional expertise than the competition, delivering it with a consistent and thoughtful degree of personal service, and maintaining an unassailable reputation for honesty and integrity. Backed by solid data collection and the scientific interpretation based on that data, our conclusions are widely respected and accepted.

To all of our highly valued clients, we say thank you for your loyalty. We assure you we will continue to deliver the expertise and service you have come to expect, with the integrity and reputation that you deserve. We look forward to many more decades of applying our science to the solution of environmental problems.

Sincerely,

David R. Hargis, Ph.D.

President and CEO
