XTO Energy, INC – Flood Plain Study
McKenzie County, North Dakota
XTO Energy, Inc. proposed to build two well pads, Arlene & Rough Federal, which would lie near an existing flood plain. UELS prepared a flood plain study for the existing watershed analyzing flow depth and velocity. This information was then used to design both well pads to the correct elevation in order to stay above the 100 year flood plain and also provide fill slope protection on the edges of the pad that would be affected by the larger storm. UELS provided Surveying, Civil Engineering and Hydrology Engineering services.
