CPV Fairview Energy Center, Jackson Township, PA
L.R. Kimball has acted as the local permitting and design engineer for development of the proposed 1 GW CPV Fairview Energy Center. Services provided for this project have included topographic mapping and site survey, development of subdivision and lot consolidation plans, creation of easement drawings, coordination with local landowners regarding easements, geotechnical investigations, site infiltration testing at proposed stormwater management locations, DEP NPDES permitting for the industrial discharge, County permits for erosion & sedimentation controls, development of PennDOT Highway Occupancy Permits, and coordination of “laydown plans” for use during project construction. L.R. Kimball also acted as the local consultant for coordination with the local municipalities that are impacted by the overall project.
One of the primary L.R. Kimball roles on the project was the siting, preliminary and final design of the raw water and industrial discharge pipelines, working with the local municipal water authority. These pipelines were placed parallel, over a roughly 8.5-mile right-of-way, through brownfields areas, wooded land, and an urban area requiring a 1,200-foot horizontal boring.
In addition, L.R. Kimball provided a similar design for a 1-mile pipeline to deliver natural gas to the new facility. Services for this portion of the work included siting and design of the pipeline right-of-way, coordination with local landowners, development of the construction erosion & sedimentation plan, grading and permitting for a natural gas meter station, and preparation of local zoning and land development permits.
