Wetland and Dam Recommendations

Site Geotechnical have Geotechnical Engineers experienced in undertaking earthworks inspections to provide advice on subgrade inspections, foundation treatments, test rolls, strip inspections for wetland and dam projects in accordance with the project Earthworks Specifications.

Given that wetlands and dams are specifically designed to hold water continual monitoring is usually required to meet this objective.  Using the wrong materials or not meeting project specification requirements can play a role on the success of the project.

Wetland and Dam Composition Design

Wetland and dam composition design start with the information collected and recorded from a detailed geotechnical field and wetland investigation and laboratory testing.

SITE Geotechnical have undertaken hundreds of recommendations for various water retention structures such as wetland and dams across Victoria.

Our Wetland and Dam services include detailed assessments, that can be provided within our design report to meet project objectives and give options to our clients.
