EEI has provided geotechnical services related to water infiltration and retention for a wide variety of developments, ranging from residential housing tracts to large commercial/retail projects. EEI services encompass preliminary percolation tests needed to gather required infiltration rates and lithology data, to mounding studies necessary to calculate and model infiltration and retention requirements, to field testing and observation for underground retention basins. The basin noted here utilizes a D-raintank set of cubes that are capable of supporting surface traffic loads once property installed and protected with geotextile and surface improvements.
