Laulea Engineering worked with Precision Drillling, Glover Construction and Intera Geosciences to design a deeper and larger injection well to take the place of the existing well system. Confined by a tight working area, a high sea level and a busy hurricane season, the project came with its share of challenges. The well was completed in early October 2018 with a final depth of 75 feet and 12 inches in diameter. Click to find out more…
Laulea designed pipes, valves, wellhead and appurtenances for three new injection wells and completed the engineering and construction plan sheets. We also coordinated with the HDOH on all applicable permit updates and performed three site visits for investigation purposes during and after construction.
Observations had shown the water levels in the existing injection wells to be only a few inches away from the well caps, which was a sign that the wells were at capacity. Laulea investigated the existing situation through percolation tests and studying of as-built plans and submitted a letter of intent to the HDOH to upgrade the wastewater system. We then completed the design calculations and engineering/construction plan sheets to ensure permitting with the HDOH before performing a final site visit.
Laulea Engineering has been contracted by the homeowner association to provide a solution to upgrade their wastewater treatment plant. Laulea Engineering is working with advanced package plant designs to provide a compact footprint, a simple operation and reduce biological solids to Department of Health Wastewater Branch standards.
Laulea's scope of work consisted of three phases. In the investigation phase, Laulea coordinated a land and utility survey and and performed a site and system evaluation, gathering information on the existing conditions. During the project design stage, we developed a basis-of-design report and completed the engineering plans for proposed expansions, while coordinating the permitting process with the HDOH. The last phase consisted of different services during construction where Laulea assisted in contractor selection and produced an operation and maintenance manual for the new wastewater system.
Laulea completed the engineering plan set pertaining to the installation of the HDOH approved Aqua Biomax wastewater teatment package unit. We continued coordination with the HDOH throughout permitting and construction and provided consulting during contractor solicitation and selection. Finally, Laulea performed multiple site visits for the purpose of further investigation during and after construction.
Laulea Engineering will be conducting a feasibility study including percolation tests and meetings with the HDOH. We will also be tasked with design and permitting of the new wastewater treatment system and permitting with the HDOH. Lastly, Laulea is going to supervise the selection of contractors and perform site visits to ensure a safe construction process.
In this project, Laulea is tasked with designing a wastewater treatment plant which will serve three restaurants and several other wastewater sources located within Old Koloa Town in Koloa, Kauai. This includes designing grease interceptor, primary and secondary treatment as well as disposal by means of underground injection wells. Furthermore, Laulea is coordinating the permitting process with the Hawaii Department of Health.
