PPL Water Supply Well Installation

Our client, PPL Electric Utilities (PPL), maintains a recreational park alongside the Susquehanna River, including a well providing a water supply for the public. The well was deteriorating and not located or constructed correctly to serve the public water needs in the park. The water it produced was not in line with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s (PA DEP) standards.

PPL needed to site and drill a new well by the end of the year, with a scheduled start in November, leaving less than eight weeks to start and finish the project. RETTEW’s experience with groundwater testing and sourcing, as well as our understanding and expertise with PA DEP requirements, led to a quick turnaround and project success. Our geosciences team managed abandonment of the old well, researched and sited the new well location, and designed and installed the new well. We also provided hydrogeologic testing and a report and assured the well was permitted and compliant with PA DEP regulations, all within the short timeframe. RETTEW’s team used our training and skill to identify the best location for the new well, which provides quality water and avoids additional design, permitting, and operational cost for the client.
