Lakeshore Environmental Implements Seasonal High-Water Table

June 13

The seasonal high-water table (SHWT) can be a critical component when designing developments at properties where the groundwater (water table) is close to the surface. Understanding the SHWT is necessary for constructing roadways and establishing base elevations for structures. Lakeshore Environmental can support residential development projects, such as the one in Ottawa County pictured above, by determining the SHWT by analyzing the soil profile onsite for soil color, hardness, and other soil characteristics.
