GTA performed stream and groundwater monitoring services at the Reserve at Fair Hill development located in Montgomery County, Maryland. This work was required by the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection (MCDEP). The development consisted of approximately 340-acres with 133-residential units. Stormwater BMPs included sediment ponds with forebays and surface sand filters. GTA’s services consisted of:
- Groundwater level monitoring through the use of datalogging pressure transducers
- Groundwater quality monitoring
- Stream level and precipitation monitoring through the use of datalogging pressure transducers and an on-site tipping-bucket rain gauge
- Stream morphology and sinuosity surveys
- Pebble count surveys
The purpose of the work was to evaluate potential impacts of the development on stream and groundwater conditions. The evaluation was successfully completed; GTA coordinated with MCDEP to conclude monitoring and to release our Client from further monitoring requirements.
