Description of work:

The job consisted of removing organic material and existing sand from approximately 10,000 LF. of cooling pond swale. Dewatering was required to remove excess water before and after the muck was removed. Fresh filter course sand material was then placed in the prepared swale and graded and sloped to allow for proper drainage. Work was accomplished with success and without incident in an ‘exclusion zone’ of a high hazard dam.
