Hydrogeologic and Geotechnical Investigations

Weaver Consultants Group has successfully completed numerous subsurface investigations for landfill expansion projects.  These investigations entailed the preparation of drilling plans, logging many thousands of feet of core samples, site-specific stratigraphic interpretations, and preparation of hydrogeology reports for permit applications.  The information obtained from the investigations is used for hydrogeologic evaluations, landfill design, and groundwater monitoring system permitting.

Weaver Consultants Group’ geotechnical engineers are experienced in managing and developing solutions for a diverse range of challenging projects for MSW facilities. For countless geological conditions, our engineers are experienced in conducting subsurface investigations. Our construction experience allows us to engineer custom solutions that are technically appropriate, constructible, and cost-effective. Weaver Consultants Group routinely integrates geotechnical soil investigations into a single service package that affords our clients economies of scale - often saving them both time and money.
