The company specializes in the following areas:

Major Projects Completed in   1998 -  2013

300,000 gpd - Land-based wastewater disposal alternatives analysis and sizing for a seasonal spray irrigation wastewater treatment and disposal system and applications of water reuse through landscape irrigation, industrial use, drip irrigation, and forested irrigation- Monroe County, Pennsylvania.

100,000 gpd+ Zero Discharge- Land-based wastewater disposal alternatives analysis and sizing for a seasonal spray irrigation wastewater treatment and disposal system and applications of water reuse through landscape irrigation, industrial reuse, golf course irrigation, drip irrigation, and forested irrigation.

40,000 gpd - Zero Discharge - Seasonal Spray Irrigation Project with Central Wastewater Collection System - 130+ edu Development - Pike County, Pennsylvania.

Developing a Land-based wastewater disposal alternative to eliminate a year-round wastewater discharge to a stream for Great Wolf Lodge, Bartonsville, Pennsylvania.

Soils, Spray Irrigation and Drip Irrigation Evaluation to update an older system and provide future growth for Camp Wayne for Girls, Wayne County, Pennsylvania- 20,000 + gpd.

Soils, Spray Irrigation, Drip Irrigation and  Hydrological Evaluation for to update an older system and provide future growth Camp Tioga, Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania- 10,000+ gpd.

Evaluation and Conceptual Design of a proposed single family constructed wetland - Evapotranspiration System,  Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania. Evaluating the Use of Constructed Wetlands System for treating wastewater from a single family residence and making recommendations regarding system configuration, pretreatment, design modifications, and operation.

Sizing and Preparing Conceptual Design for Bioretention Systems for Treating Stormwater Runoff. Multiple projects in Carbon, Luzerne, Lackawanna, Monroe, and Pike County. Preliminary projects were also conducted in Southeastern Pennsylvania.

Preliminary hydrological evaluation and Nitrate Dispersion Plume Modeling for Low-flow and large volume on-site wastewater disposal systems.

Conducting soils and hydrological evaluations related to the dry stream discharge systems.

Proposed East Stroudsburg School Complex- Completed all the necessary site testing and provided design information for the siting of a 50,000 gpd spray irrigation wastewater disposal system. Through the use of fracture tracing, a proposed well location was determined and subsequent drilling and investigation resulting in a well producing over 300 gpm.

Review of New York Model Ordinance for On-lot Wastewater Disposal- Technical review of a proposed model ordinance for New York State. Services included a technical review of testing protocols, system selection, system design, and construction
