Geotechnical Evaluations for Freshwater Impoundments

Many natural gas extraction sites rely on water impoundments to hold the major component of freshwater needed for resource extraction. Before designing or permitting these impoundments, clients must investigate subsurface conditions including soil, water table, and bedrock properties to assure constructability and meet regulatory design criteria.

As part of an overall water sourcing program, RETTEW completed geotechnical site investigations and analyses for water impoundment development. Our team worked on an accelerated schedule and maintained a high level of accuracy to meet client needs and satisfy regulatory requirements. Our qualified personnel used their expertise in construction and maintenance standards and jurisdictional requirements to enable clients to accurately assess feasibility. Because of RETTEW’s thorough geotechnical investigations and analyses, our involvement, our client experienced far fewer unexpected costs during construction.
