Panaca Farmstead Association Rapid Infiltration Basin Improvements

  • Client Panaca Farmstead Association

  • Location Panaca, Nevada

  • Services Engineering Investigation

Project Highlights

  • Inadequate percolation in existing rapid infiltration basins (RIBs)

  • Complications in the operation of its wastewater treatment facility

  • Investigated the causes of the low infiltration

  • Recommended solutions

  • Geotechnical report to map the subsurface profile which shed light on the potential causes

  • Two alternative solutions evaluated-expansion of the rapid infiltration basin footprint and implementation of an irrigation disposal system
