Mission & History
Weber, Hayes & Associates (WHA) has provided over two decades of hydrogeologic and environmental engineering consulting services throughout the Central Coast and San Francisco Bay regions and beyond. Our expert staff provides straightforward solutions to regulatory and planning requirements associated with environmental assessment and the cleanup of soil, groundwater, and stormwater. Powered by a staff of experienced earth scientists, hydrogeologists, and engineers, Weber, Hayes & Associates is qualified to provide a wide range of surface and sub-surface investigations.
Our firm was founded in 1981 as G. E. Weber Geologic Consulting, by Dr. Gerald E. Weber who has been active as a geologic consultant in the Monterey Bay area since 1974. In 1988, Joseph Hayes, a hydrogeologist, joined the team and the company was incorporated as Weber and Associates (later Weber, Hayes and Associates). Originally, our firm focused on engineering geologic studies in respect to geologic hazards prior to development. We supported the Santa Cruz region after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, which exposed deficiencies in geologic stability for properties throughout the region. As time went on, we began to increasingly conduct hydrogeological assessments and subsurface remediation projects, under the guidance of Mr. Hayes.
