1. Mont Alto Raw Water and Reservoir System Study

    The raw water reservoir at The Pennsylvania State University (PSU) Mont Alto provides potable water to the major buildings and residences on campus. The water system includes Tarburner Spring, a 40,000-gallon raw water reservoir, a water treatment system, a 150,000-gallon finished water tank, and distribution system. Upon inspection, we determined the structural integrity and expected…

  2. 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…

  3. Jonah Energy Annual Water Supply Sampling Program

    After acquiring various field assets for natural gas production, Jonah Energy needed to implement an annual groundwater sampling program to monitor potential changes in water quality associated with development. Their new properties included a natural gas production area of 24,000 acres and more than 1,500 active wells, as well as more than 100,000 undeveloped acres….

  4. Ohio Water Sourcing Program

    To maintain two current rigs, sustain two additional rigs, and support a robust drilling program in their Ohio and Utica holdings, our client needed a reliable water sourcing program. The first step in program development involved a shift from draining small, potentially unpermitted pond sources to more predictable sources like rivers and streams. Next steps…

  5. Spring Creek Surface Water Withdrawal

    A natural gas client planned to install and operate hundreds of wells in the Marcellus Shale Play. Each well is dependent on water sourcing to continue production, and the major water source for use was several miles away. The path to and from the source crossed federal, state, and private properties. To accommodate the client’s…

  6. Surface Water Withdrawal Record of Disturbance

    A natural gas client was developing water sources to support its hydraulic fracturing operations. To fulfill its water needs, the client wanted to construct a surface water withdrawal near a dam, which required extra precautions in placement and structure as the dam was in poor condition. In addition, the pipeline size and routing were not…

  7. Water Sourcing and Planning

    A natural gas client was delving into a new shale play for the first time and had limited internal resources and knowledge of the state regulatory landscape. To add pressure, they were operating with an aggressive drilling and resource extraction schedule. To assist in getting their operations online quickly, the client needed heavy support to…

  8. 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…

  9. Shippensburg Borough Authority Well Improvements

    Shippensburg Borough Authority authorized RETTEW to design improvements to the Authority’s existing well site, which was last updated 17 years before. The upgrades were necessary to provide water for increased system demand. The improvements also raised worker and public safety awareness with a conversion from chlorine gas to on-site sodium hypochlorite generation. The existing site…
