This water supply network entailed wetland/stream delineation, impact avoidance/minimization analysis, and permitting for two above ground waterlines to be used by an MKA client for hydraulic fracturing. These waterlines connect a water source and storage to a group of well pads. In addition to environmental, MKA services included alignment selection and engineering design.
- Alignment crosses Exceptional Value and Wild Trout streams
- Design utilized existing culverted road crossings for waterline alignment which allowed for favorable permitting path
- Alignment at existing road crossings of streams allowed for less complicated PADEP Small Projects Joint Permit
- Project schedule was shortened via a design that did not require a USACOE Section 404 Permit
- 3.1 miles of waterline
