In agricultural applications as well as municipal applications, liquid waste is often detained in holding lagoons. In the State of Colorado, holding ponds as well as landfills must maintain a minimum amount of seepage into the underlying soils.

  • Earth Engineering Consultants, LLC (EEC) can provide subsurface exploration to identify soil conditions in areas of newly constructed lagoons, analyze the subsurface soils and provide recommendations regarding design and construction of the holding ponds
  • EEC can install piezometers to monitor groundwater elevations
  • EEC provides laboratory testing of soil permeability (falling head permeability) for underlying soils and potential low permeability soils
  • EEC also provides observation and testing of liner materials during construction to assist in proper installation
  • Existing lagoon liners can be laboratory tested to determine existing seepage rates
