Representative Projects:

  • Re-Development Master Planning Framework for South Park Fairgrounds, Allegheny County, PA
    Sci-Tek Consultants, Inc. (Sci-Tek) was retained as a sub consultant  to perform an existing conditions survey of utility services at the Allegheny County South Park Fairgrounds (The Fairgrounds).  Sci-Tek's scope of work consisted of an existing conditions survey of utility services located within the Fairgrounds and the  preparation of a base map to serve as the basis for planning activities, including data collection, analysis, conceptual plans, and final recommendations.  In addition, Sci-Tek prepared a summary report which documented infrastructure related opportunities and constraints to redevelop the Fairgrounds.

  • Wet weather engineering and planning for the Allegheny County Sanitary Authority
    ALCOSAN (Allegheny County Sanitary Authority), as part of its plan to reduce the effects of rain and groundwater infiltration into its wastewater sewers, engaged Sci-Tek to assist with planning, perform quality reviews of monitored wastewater flow data, project and assess future conditions in the watersheds, and perform various modeling services. Sci-Tek personnel also assisted in the sewershed delineation of 400+ countywide connections to the ALCOSAN system. This information was used to populate a model, which identifies system loading, collection inefficiencies, and projects system needs and improvements.
