Dallas Floodway Levee Rehabilitation Study - Phase 1A
Dallas, Texas

The City of Dallas originally built the East and West Levees in the early 1930s. The Corps of Engineers modified these levees in the late 1950s.

The Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2007 authorized the Corps to participate with the City on raising the levees by 2 feet, improving slope stability (4:1), and providing environmental enhancements.  The 2009 report includes an overall Unacceptable Rating for the Dallas Floodway System based on the fact that it will not contain a Standard Project Flood (+4).  This deficiency is the genesis for the Trinity River Flood Control Project.

The project involved a geotechnical investigation for the Dallas Floodway Levee Rehabilitation Study - Phase 1A.   HVJ's scope included wells development, slug tests, level trolls installation to continuously monitor groundwater levels, and piezometer data collection and management.

Tarrant Regional Water District Pump Stations & Intakes
North, Texas

Working with CH2M Hill, HVJ is engaged in planning, designing and implementing a 149-mile, 350 MGD raw water transmission pipeline system from Lake Palestine to Lake Benbrook, with connections to Cedar Creek Reservoir, Richland Chambers Reservoir and a Dallas delivery point. HVJ is responsible for providing geotechnical explorations and associated data report services (geotechnical exploration services) to support water pump station design for the Lake Pump Stations in the Integrated Pipeline.  

HVJ will provide geotechnical explorations, laboratory analyses of geotechnical samples, and literature and data reports related to the geotechnical exploration and overall site and regional setting.  These services will be provided for Cedar Creek Pump Station and Intake, Richland Chambers Pump Station, and Lake Palestine Pump Station and Intake.
