Fort Bragg Infiltration Testing

Project Summary

Timmons Group completed infiltration testing for proposed stormwater management facilities at the U.S. Army’s Fort Bragg installation.  As a first step in designing effective stormwater management facilities supporting onsite development, an infiltration analysis was completed within disturbed and undisturbed soils at the active base.  These infiltration tests directly supported the design of appropriate stormwater management facilities by determining infiltration rates and any soil amendments necessary to meet target infiltration rates.  Depths to seasonal high water table were also monitored to ensure groundwater protection was achieved through the final design. 

Project Highlights

  • 20 soil borings and infiltration tests completed
  • Constant Head Permeameter infiltration rate measurements
  • Key first step to support effective stormwater management facility design
