Overland Park, KS— Geotechnology Inc, a provider of geotechnical and environmental engineering, materials testing and drilling, announces that it has been awarded work on three major construction projects in the Kansas City region.

Geotechnology will be providing exploration of subsurface conditions, and recommendations for design and construction of a new ethanol plant on a 391-acre site two miles west of Hugoton, KS. Plans call for construction of a new rail yard to facilitate the delivery of grain used in processing the ethanol. The plan will house grain storage silos, tanks, buildings, cooling towers, and a water treatment plant and wastewater pond.

The second project involves similar work on the Little Blue Parkway extension in Independence, MO. The extension runs from Necessary Road to Truman Road, and will require construction of 9,000 feet of new roadway, a new bridge and triple-box culvert, and installation of reinforced concrete pipes.

The third project involves construction observation and materials testing for the Basehor Waste Water Treatment Plant in Basehor, KS. The plant is being expanded and upgraded to include a new anaerobic basin, carousel basin, splitter box, anoxic basin, and two secondary clarifiers.
