NGE performed the subsurface investigation and geotechnical engineering for two replacement bridges carrying I-81 over US 11 in Berkeley County, West Virginia.
In order to design the new Westbridge Business and Retail Park, near Morgantown, West Virginia, the developer had to put the site through a detailed evaluation. Since the site of the park was being proposed on an abandoned strip mine, and an underground coal mine, they wanted to be thorough in their investigation before breaking ground.
NGE was retained by the prime consultant, Civil and Environmental Consultants (CEC), to complete geotechnical gas well infrastructure investigations at the six proposed well pads, three centralized impoundments, and a horizontal directional drilling location for a pipeline roadway crossing.
The State of West Virginia, Department of Environmental Protection, Office of Abandoned Mine Lands and Reclamation, issued open-ended Purchase Orders (DEP14999 & 15000) for geotechnical and subsurface investigation (drilling) services throughout West Virginia (northern and southern counties respectively). The field and laboratory services performed under these contracts culminated in the development of investigation reports to support the DEP’s AML program.
