Log Yard Wet-deck Runoff Treatment Feasibility Study

Client: Interforest Corporation
Location: Darlington, Beaver County, PA

LSSE was retained by Interforest Corporation to prepare an engineering evaluation and feasibility study to address log yard wet deck runoff treatment. The site is situated adjacent to a delineated flood zone, which impacted alternative analyses. The study included comprehensive waste stream characterization, flow monitoring, sampling and laboratory analyses.

LSSE provided engineering assessment of collection and treatment options including containment and pumping, conventional treatment methods (slow sand filters, sedimentation ponds, settling basins and high rate filtration) and innovative treatment methods (constructed wetlands and trench filters).
