Groundwater Investigation and Monitoring Plan

Stockertown, PA

Bowman prepared a groundwater work plan and implemented a groundwater investigation. The purpose of the investigation was to address the karstic terrain surrounding the 300-acre cement quarry. The work consisted of drilling over 1,200 ft of monitoring wells, stream gauging, down hole geophysics, photolineament analysis, aquifer testing, resistively analysis and geologic mapping. The groundwater report detailed the hydrogeologic setting of the quarry and evaluated the impact of dewatering on the surrounding water table and the generation of sinkholes in the region.
