Stuntzner Engineering and Forestry has completed work on a reservoir in Oregon’s Yamhill County. The Bonnie Jean Reservoir near Carlton is one of numerous reservoirs that the Stuntzner staff has worked on in Oregon. Stuntzner provides a variety of services for each reservoir project including project management, site selection, topographic surveys, preparation of water rights applications, reservoir and dam design, geotechnical and civil engineering, preparation of construction plans and specifications, environmental permitting, bidding services, construction staking and construction observation.
The owner was in the process of converting property they have historically used for dry land farming into a vineyard. The owner had a compressed time shedule. Stuntzner worked to make sure the reservoir would comply with the “Alternate Review Application Process” instead of the standard process, which ensured that the reservoir could be constructed within the needed deadlines. Stuntzner’s thorough experience in the full range of tasks needed to construct a reservoir enabled this project to be completed on time.
