PSE&G Geotechnical Investigation

Various Townships, NJ

Project Overview

MFS Engineers & Surveyors (MFS) provided professional geotechnical engineering and geotechnical drilling services to Public Service Electric & Gas (PSE&G) for various projects located in the state of New Jersey. MFS completed on-call subsurface investigations to support utility crossings including trenchless underground crossings and overhead crossings consisting of laminated poles and steel monopoles for various utility upgrade projects throughout the PSE&G service area.

Project Details

MFS’ geotechnical team coordinated with our in-house drilling agency, MFS Construction, to complete investigative borings and provided field oversight during the field investigation for each of the various PSE&G projects. During each boring, samples were obtained via Standard Penetration Test and the borings were performed using hollow stem augers and mud rotary drilling techniques. When required, rock cores were obtained to determine the strength and quality of the bedrock. Upon completion of the field investigations, MFS contracted and coordinated with a geotechnical testing laboratory to carry out a testing program.

Following the subsurface investigations, MFS’ geotechnical division compiled the results of subsurface investigation and laboratory testing into detailed geotechnical engineering reports and geotechnical data reports as required by each specific project. The geotechnical engineering reports provided the client with design and construction recommendations for the proposed utility installation foundations consisting of deep or shallow foundation systems. Soil and rock design parameters were provided by MFS to support the foundation design and to be used in applicable foundation design software for the proposed structures.
