The company specializes in the following areas:
Because of Mr. Oram background in Environmental Pollution Control and research on removal mechanisms for the parasitic protozoan Giardia, B.F. Environmental Consultants has been involved with the evaluation of surface and groundwater supplies for the purpose of determining if Giardia is present or if the groundwater source was directly under the influence of a surface water body. The company has also provided expert testimony in the fields of environmental science, hydrology, on-lot wastewater disposal, and geology.
300,000 gpd - Land-based wastewater disposal alternatives analysis and sizing for a seasonal spray irrigation wastewater treatment and disposal system and applications of water reuse through landscape irrigation, industrial use, drip irrigation, and forested irrigation.
40,000 gpd - Zero Discharge - Seasonal Spray Irrigation Project with Central Wastewater Collection System - 130+ edu Development - Pike County, Pennsylvania.
SRBC - Consumptive Water Withdrawal for Spring Water Development (> 100,000 gpd) - Consumptive Water Withdrawal for Golf Course Irrigaiton (> 100,000 gpd). Evaluation of Graywater Reuse for Golf Course Irrigation and Landscape Irrigation (Luzerne, Monroe, and Pike County).
Completing Preliminary and Detailed Hydrological Investigations, Nitrate Loading Evaluations, Groundwater modeling, and developing for groundwater monitoring plans for proposed spray irrigation, drip irrigation, and conventional large-volume land-based wastwater disposal systems (Design Flows ranging from 5,000 to over 300,000 gpd).
Wellhead Protection and Groundwater Capture Zone Analysis for the development of water supply protection plan for Community Water Supplies in the Poconos.
Community Water Supply Development - Fracture Tracing Analysis - Groundwater Resource Evaluations and Feasibility Studies in Carbon, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike, Susquehanna, and Wayne County. Production flows ranging from 10,000 to over 200,000 gpd.
Land-Based Disposal System Siting and Conceptual Design - Proposed Green Building in West Virginia.
Data Gap Analysis for the Paradise Creek Watershed Pocono's Region and other projects using GIS/GPS.
Spring Development Projects, Groundwater Sources and Hydrogeological Evaluations for Bottled Water Facilities ranging from 35 to over 200 gpm- Carbon, Luzerne, Lackawanna, Monroe, Susquehanna, Wyoming, and Pike County.
Proposed East Stroudsburg School Complex- Completed all the necessary site testing and provided design information for the siting of a 50,000 gpd spray irrigation wastewater disposal system. Through the use of fracture tracing, a proposed well location was determined and subsequent drilling and investigation resulting in a well producing over 300 gpm.
Proposed Jim Thorpe Elementary School Complex- Completed all necessary soils and onsite testing for a 10,000 gpd spray irrigation wastewater disposal system. Site testing included: soil test pits, hydroconductivity testing, and determining infiltration capacity. Data was used to develop a site specific water budget, calculate the annual and monthly spray irrigation loading depths, document the direction of groundwater flow, and develop a groundwater monitoring program.
Review of New York Model Ordinance for On-lot Wastewater Disposal- Technical review of a proposed model ordinance for New York State. Services included a technical review of testing protocols, system selection, system design, and construction
Pocono Brewing Company- Conducted a Preliminary and Detailed Hydrological Investigation to Determine Direction of Groundwater Flow and Development of Long-Term Monitoring Plan. Also, the company is providing technical assistance with the monitoring of a new Wastewater Denitrification System used by the facility.
Diesel Fuel Contamination- On-site testing, site characterization, monitoring well design and installation, mapping groundwater flow and contaminant pathways, and developing groundwater and soil monitoring plan.
Developing Land Based Wastewater Disposal Alternatives for the Blooming Grove Hunting and Fishing Club a combination of conventional disposal, experimental systems, and spray irrigation.
Evaluating the Use of Constructed Wetlands System for treating wastewater from a single family residence and making recommendations regarding system configuration, pretreatment, design, and operation.
