Pickering Brook Primary School: Geotechnical Reporting/Engineering Investigation

Pickering Brook Primary School: Geotechnical Reporting/Engineering Investigation

Environmental Engineers International (EEI) was commissioned to conduct a geotechnical investigation of the Pickering Brook Primary School Oval and engineering design study to confirm the viability of land disposal for the School’s treated wastewater.

EEI determined the soil and groundwater profile, drainage characteristics, and other soil properties to design a suitable irrigation rate for the site. The geotechnical investigation revealed the School Oval had a consistent hard impermeable rock/clay layer that could limit subsurface disposal through infiltration. EEI conducted a vigorous assessment of the site soil and meteorological data, and considered stakeholder values in finding a solution that could be accepted by the School community.   

Through EEI’s attention to detail, a solution to this technically challenging project was delivered promptly to provide certainty for the School’s future.
