Food Processor Retains LEI for Wastewater Engineering and Management Services

By Engineering, Projects, Sustainability

A West Michigan based food processor has contracted LEI to engineer and construct two lined basins for management of process wastewater.  The basins will provide proper storage of process wastewater for treatment prior to eventual land application pursuant to applicable regulatory guidelines. 

LEI will monitor the ongoing operation of this system to ensure optimal performance and protection of the environment.  Eventual land application of the process wastewater will result in the recharge of groundwater, a precious Michigan resource. 

This project is another example of how LEI has developed a sustainable solution to a business challenge, which will also result in long-term monetary savings to our client.

Foundation Design and General Site Preparations, Norton Shores, Michigan

By Engineering

Lakeshore conducted the first geotechnical investigation for the property now occupied by the shopping centers, restaurants, and hotels west of a large mall, which at the time the property was merely blueberry fields. Lakeshore’s report provided recommendations for shallow foundation design, groundwater interference, and pre-construction subgrade preparation.

During a later phase, Lakeshore completed a site-specific investigation for the site of a national chain department store, which focused on foundation recommendation for their standard store construction.
