Driving by the Living Water Baptist Church in Sardis, we are amazed by the appearance of the new retaining wall!  Swiss Valley Associates worked with Foster Supply on the design and Benchmark Construction built the wall. The retaining wall is a creative idea to develop additional space behind the building.  Thanks to all for a job well done!

Clarington Water and Waste Water SCADA System Replacement

Larry Bailey, water / waste water operator at the Village of Clarington, Ohio is pleased with the new SCADA system SVA, BEC Systems, and Bee Electric installed.  They recently had a slip on Sykes Ridge Road which broke the water line.  The abnormal water use from the water line showed up on the SCADA screen showing over 40,000 gallons of water pumped instead of the normal 3,000 gallons.   This information allowed them to stop the water flow before emptying the water tank.

Barnesville St. Vincent Thrift Store

The St. Vincent of Barnesville Thrift Store is nearly finished. We appreciated the opportunity to design the building and provide construction management working with their group. The project incorporated several efficient building systems including extra insulation and min-split heat pumps with an energy recovery unit. LED lights were installed throughout the building.  Large windows were installed in the display area and smaller windows in the storage and work areas to provide natural light in the building.  2/2018

Plat Maps and Well Pad Design

Swiss Valley Associates and Cathedral sponsored the spring project designed by the Energy Business Alliance at Marietta College.  The project for the spring semester of 2017 covered the design of a horizontal Utica/Point Pleasant well with the aid of local practicing engineers. The students have poured extensive time and research into this project and it will serve as part of their portfolios as they venture into the working industry. This information will be shared with many in the Oil & Gas industry through presentations, the students’ interviews, and employment applications. The students have received great feedback, enthusiasm, and praise on a “job well done” on the project from members of the Petroleum Engineering faculty and staff of Marietta College, leaders in the Oil & Gas industry, and the community.

Swiss Valley Associates drew the production unit plat maps for the proposed well. The production unit boundary for the south unit and 38H lateral were drawn using basemap CAD data provided by CESO.  The grading plan was drawn using aerial photography and LIDAR elevation data from the Ohio State Imagery Program.
