Approx. Value: $1,400,000

Client: United States Department of Agriculture

Status: Fall 2010

Description:

This project covered the closure of two separate abandoned mine sites in the Deckers Creek watershed. There was an extensive amount of rip rap ditches installed (over 30,000 tons) on the project site along with large ponds for the capture and containment of acid mine runoff for treatment. Mines were also sealed, and the entire project site area was reclaimed to the highest government standards. The project was completed ahead of schedule.
