Twiggs County Hwy 80 MSWL Expansion

Client: Twiggs-Wilkinson Joint Landfill Commission
Status: Completed 2003
Cost: 1 Million

General Description

HMW developed construction plans and specifications, managed the contruction bid process, and conducted construction review for a 4-acre cell expansion of the MSWL. HMW was also asked to complete an updated hydrogeological investigation of the complex hydrogeological regime for the facility in order to design a revised Groundwater Monitoring Plan.

Innovative Concepts

HMW utilized sonic drilling technology to further characterize the hydrogeology of the site, which provided much needed continuous soil cores for the selected areas and allowed for geologic mapping at a much more detailed scale. Following the site investigation, a Groundwater Monitoring Plan was designed and well placement and monitoring frequency were negotiated with the Georgia EDP.
