Groundwater Hydrology Projects

Soil & Environmental Consultants, PA (S&EC) has conducted groundwater hydrology evaluations for surface and subsurface wastewater systems, and provided permit consultation for compliance with NCDENR, NCDWQ and local County regulations on a wide variety of projects in North Carolina.  Example projects include:

Coastal Studies Institute in Manteo, Dare County, NC – Project work consisted of Soil/Site Evaluation, Hydrologic Evaluation, and Site Loading Capacity for an Infiltration Basin Wastewater System.  The design daily flow was 7,000 GPD. This project is currently in the construction phase.

Lake Wheeler Road Expansion Project in Raleigh, Wake County, NC – Soils Evaluation, Hydrology Analysis & Hydrogeologic Study, NCDENR & Wake County Permit Coordination. The design daily flow was 13,000 GPD.

North Carolina Forest Service in Chatham County, NC – Soils Evaluation, Hydrologic Evaluation, Wastewater System Design and Permitting.

Garner Wastewater Treatment Facility in Wake County, NC – Project work consisted of Soil/Site Evaluation, Hydrologic Evaluation, Phosphorus Loss Assessment Study and Site Loading Capacity for a Proposed Spray Irrigation Wastewater System for the Garner Wastewater Treatment Facility. The design daily flow was 500,000 GPD. This project is currently in the design phase.

Highland Meadows in Banner Elk, Watauga County, NC – Project work consisted of Soil/Site Evaluation, Ksat measurements, Hydrologic Evaluation and Site Loading Capacity for a Proposed Residential Development. This project is currently in the design phase for multiple subsurface drip irrigation systems to be permitted by NCDEH. The design daily flow is 22,000 GPD.

Slash Creek, LLC in Dare County, NC – Project work related to the Soil Analysis, Ksat measurements, Hydrologic Mounding Analysis and Groundwater Modeling for the disposal of the reuse quality treated wastewater at this site. The design daily flow was 18,000 GPD and was permitted by NCDWQ in 2005. 

Ginguite in Dare County, NC – Project work related to the Soil Analysis, Ksat measurements, Hydrologic Mounding Analysis and Groundwater Modeling for the disposal of the reuse quality treated wastewater at this site.  The design daily flow was 32,500 GPD and was permitted by NCDWQ in 2001. 

Clarkton Wastewater Treatment Facility in Bladen County, NC – Project work consisted of Soil/Site Evaluation, Ksat measurements, Hydrologic Evaluation and Site Loading Capacity for a Proposed Reuse Spray Irrigation Wastewater System for the Clarkton Wastewater Treatment Facility. The design daily flow was 240,000 GPD, however after our analysis this site was not pursued for permitting by the Town of Clarkton.
