Many people think of the ground beneath our feet as just a big pile of dirt and rocks. However, if you’ve ever watched rainwater soak into the ground you might wonder where it all goes. Vast amounts of groundwater is found beneath the subsurface and is an important consideration for construction projects, especially those that excavate down deep. Continually measuring the amount, depths, and pressures of groundwater can mean the difference between a successful project and a nightmare scenario.
Whether you are an excavating contractor or a nearby building worried about groundwater, Municon is here as a trusted 3rd party to help you monitor groundwater levels and create reports set against predetermined benchmarks. Our reports are based upon real-time data from industry-leading monitoring wells and piezometers, and not a “gut feeling” that the groundwater situation is acceptable.
When possible, we take initial baseline readings to make sure we understand the ambient groundwater profile before construction initiates. Automated alerts can be sent out if thresholds are passed. We will not only give early warnings of groundwater related issues, but we will also confirm when corrective measures have been effectively implemented.
