May Meeting - Infiltration (Zoom Presentation) 

Jeremy Faker, P.E.

 Jeremy is a project geotechnical engineer at Group Delta with 8 years of professional experience working on infrastructure, industrial, commercial, military, and higher education projects.  He has coordinated, conducted, and managed geotechnical site investigations and reports, and has experience performing and managing geotechnical related construction activities for large- and small-scale grading and construction projects.  For the last 5 years, Jeremy has performed field infiltration testing and infiltration feasibility assessments for shallow and deep storm water best management practices (BMPs) on a variety of projects across Southern California.  Jeremy is a San Diego native, and has an M.S. degree in Geotechnical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin (2014) and B.S. in Civil Engineering from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (2010).

Important Geotechnical Aspects of Infiltration

The presentation will discuss important geotechnical aspects of infiltration field testing and BMP design.  Specifically, the presentation will discuss the current City and County of San Diego geotechnical design and reporting requirements, NRCS soil types, types of infiltration field testing (test procedures, applications, advantages, disadvantages) and geotechnical constraints, among other aspects.  We will also discuss a few local examples that highlight important aspects of infiltration.
