We have that #FridayFeeling! Working at gorgeous North Fork Dam in Asheville, N.C., brings to mind all the beautiful places folks will be visiting this weekend as the last hurrah of summer. We wish everyone a safe and happy Labor Day holiday, wherever your travels take you. For details about the improvements that will be made at North Fork, we invite you to visit the project website: #dams #fridayfeeling #labordayweekend #asheville #northforkdam #northforkreservoir #nature_perfection

Our client, the New Jersey Water Supply Authority, has launched a new website dedicated to informing the public about the latest progress on the Round Valley Reservoir Structures Refurbishment and Resource Preservation Project and allow them to easily communicate questions and comments to project representatives. Improvements to the reservoirs aging structures using modern design and construction techniques will extend their durability, resilience and operating life. NJWSA operates and maintains the reservoir, which is located in Clinton, New Jersey. It is the largest drinking water supply by volume in the state. As Engineer of Record for the project, Schnabel is responsible for its design and quality assurance. Design began this year, and we will be working closely with NJSWA and Gannett Fleming (Owners Engineer) over the next several years as work progresses. #dams #reservoir #njwsa #watersupply #hunterdoncounty

#SiteVisitTuesday. Geotechnical engineers get to spend quality time outdoors in some amazing and world-class urban settings. On this site visit in July, personnel from two of our local offices were conducting a subsurface exploration at the Lower Senate Park Plaza directly above the 84,000 square foot Senate underground garage in Washington, D.C. We are pleased to be on Turner Construction Company''s team for this comprehensive garage renovation and landscape restoration project for the Architect of the Capitol. #washingtondc #russellsenateofficebuilding #turnerconstruction #geotech #SubsurfaceExploration #historicplaces #undergroundparking #landscaperestoration #architectofthecapitol

#ThrowbackThursday to last weeks conference and technical research from the 1990s. Robin Reed (Blacksburg) and James Whitt (Greensboro) attended the 17th annual Geohazards Impacting Transportation in Appalachia conference that was held August 15-17 in Blacksburg, Virginia. At the request of VDOT, Robin presented her 20 year-old masters degree research related to the rock slope stability issues at the Smart Road, a 2.2-mile closed test-bed research facility owned and maintained by VDOT and managed by Virginia Tech Transportation Institute. Robin also helped lead a field trip to the Smart Road. Also along on the field trip was a UAV, which was piloted by Chester Skip Watts, Robins thesis advisor. Besides great photography, the demonstration showcased other geotech-related capabilities such as collecting data for a slope stability analysis at the quarry next to the Smart Road. Robin Reed is pictured at the far left (wearing a blue Schnabel T-shirt). The fellow next to her in the black T-shirt and black jeans is Brian Bruckno with VDOT. #geology #geologist #geohazardsfieldtrip #geohazards #dronephotography #smartroad #vdot #vatech #blacksburg
