Larson Design Group (LDG) provided survey, wetland, and permitting services for this 12-mile pipeline in Wells and Columbia Townships.
This project required a Category III Review to be sent to the Army Corp. of Engineers (ACOE). LDG worked closely with the ACOE reviewers and provided timely replies to all of their comments and concerns. The ACOE grouped this project with an 8-mile pipeline that LDG designed. Both projects were approved, allowing 20+ miles of pipeline to be constructed in one year.
This project also involved analysis of Horizontal Directional Drill (HDD) bores. Due to strict landowner agreements, routing and locating the pipeline was a challenge. LDG had to design the bores for the 16″ and 20″ pipelines with very tight radii.
