FEEDLOTS_edit.gif
Regulatory agencies have been reviewing livestock construction and expansion permit applications since 1997. More than one-third of approved permits (the number is higher in western Nebraska) are required to monitor ground water. An approved monitoring plan is necessary for state operating permits. A minimum of three monitoring wells may be necessary, and those wells need to be sampled a minimum of two times per year.  PG&E can help in the development of feedlot monitoring plans, the installation of monitoring wells, and the regular monitoring and sampling of these monitoring wells.

GEOTECH_edit.gif
You have always been told to fear the things that lurk beneath. Our geotechnical team removes the fear by investigating the soil, subterranean structures and other factors that could impact any project. By understanding what lies beneath, you can reduce or avoid unforeseen conditions and costly change orders. The investigations provide insight into subsurface investigations and potential impacts they could have on a project. Issues can then be address during the design phase saving both time and money. Knowing site conditions or problems prior to building or purchasing allows you to verify the stability of the land and reduce the risk of your project while protecting your investment. Our team’s training, consulting and field and lab testing services afford our clients peace of mind. You can be confident that underground conditions are properly characterized for building and risks from potential hazards below the surface are minimized.
