Manhard provided preliminary civil engineering and permitting services to the client.

The proposed panel installation will be constructed on a little used area of the property.  Lake County has determined that neither detention nor volume control are required for solar panel installations.  In addition, a portion of the installation is located within a designated “scenic corridor”, so permitting with respect to tree relocation is required.  In addition, a permit is still needed to ensure compliance with soil erosion and sediment control requirements while the project is under construction.

The proposed design will incorporate relocation of numerous trees within the project vicinity to an approved location through “scenic corridor” requirements.
