Project Description

CGC Geoservices participated in a pilot project with the City of Philadelphia Water Department for the use of subsurface drainage wells for deep infiltration practices. Geotechnical test borings were performed, followed by the performance of well permeameter infiltration testing. The project involved extensive coordination with the City to avoid impacts to existing utilities, obtain necessary permits for street closures and to obtain hydrant permits due to the large quantity of water required for this method of infiltration testing.
