Worlds End State Park Day Use Area

The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (PA DCNR) needed a day use facility for visitors to its 780-acre Worlds End State Park, one of PA DCNR’s premier recreational facilities. RETTEW provided engineering services for the construction of four new comfort stations, three new bath houses, one new beach house, new wastewater disposal systems, and a new water storage and distribution system.

RETTEW provided engineering design and permitting for three community on-lot disposal solutions to replace failing systems for the beach area, cabin area, and upper campground area of the park. RETTEW designed a water treatment and distribution system for a non-community transient water system. We coordinated the design with PA DCNR staff and included a highway occupancy permit for state road boring and Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP) approvals.

RETTEW provided geological services for siting a water supply well to augment the existing system. RETTEW identified problematic geologic formations and recommended a well design to isolate contaminants. The result was a high-yield, high-quality well that met with the approval of PA DEP and PA DCNR.
