Richards delivers soil study findings

Travis Richards, P.E., a Senior Project Manager and Vice President (Laboratory and Testing) at Eustis Engineering, presented findings from a recent soil sample study performed for the Sewerage & Water Board of New Orleans.

On 10 August, Travis outlined a summary of our findings to the Orleans Parish Water Quality Task Force. The title of the presentation was “Urban Soil Taxonomic Descriptions and Characterization of Soil Chemical Properties as Applied to Storm Water Management and Green Infrastructure.”

For the study, Eustis Engineering sampled soils and in-situ hydraulic conditions at 23 locations in New Orleans to support new storm water management practices incorporating green infrastructure.
