Regulatory Compliance to an Otherwise Failing System
The wastewater infrastructure at the campground was failing in many ways. Septic tanks were cracked, collection lines were broken resulting in significant inflow and infiltration flows, and the wastewater pond’s liner had failed. To complicate things further, the groundwater table was only a few feet below surface level which presented a significant challenge to all underground work.
- Performed permitting and construction work within complex regulatory environment.
- Reached substantial completion of construction activities within 90 days.
- Reduced costs and enhanced reliability of operations via site-wide controls system.
As Design-Builder, NSU led all permitting efforts with the County, and Regional Water Quality Control Board. NSU replaced the site’s collection system, ultimately installing a pressurized collection system in order to avoid extensive excavation work throughout the site. This collection system provided the added benefit of reducing inflow and infiltration which had previously challenged the site. NSU also redesigned the pond system and final disinfection systems in order to restore compliance and protect the surrounding groundwater aquifer.
