Infrastructure Alternatives provided water treatment services for the River Raisin PCB Dredging project. The overall project involved hotspot mechanical dredging of sediment containing concentrations of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in excess of the 50 mg/kg limit regulated by the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) from deposits adjacent to the U.S. Army … [Read more...]

Infrastructure Alternatives utilized an 8 inch diameter auger dredge with an 8 inch inline booster pump to remove 20,000 cubic yards of solidified coal ash from a runoff water management pond at a coal fired electricity generation plant in Mississippi. Runoff from an adjacent coal ash pile had carried ash waste into the pond and had reduced the depth of the … [Read more...]
During this project, 14,000 cubic yards of contaminated sediment was hydraulically dredged from a former borrow pit and dewatered in geotextile tubes. An existing asphalt parking lot was converted into a geotextile tube laydown area with the installation of temporary sand berms and a high density polyethylene (HDPE) liner. Eighty foot circumference … [Read more...]
In July 2010, a crude oil pipeline near Marshall, Michigan ruptured and spilled an estimated 840,000 – 1,000,000 gallons of crude oil into Talmadge Creek and the Kalamazoo River. As part of the cleanup effort, an area of the Kalamazoo River near the Ceresco Dam was dredged to remove oil-contaminated sediment. The dredged sediment was pumped to a temporary … [Read more...]
Summary: Approximately 16,000 cubic yards of accumulated soft sediment, silt and natural clay were hydraulically dredged from the river and marina to increase the navigable depth by four feet. Geotextile tubes used to dewater the dredged sediment were staged in two municipal parking lots along the river. The active dredging phase of the project took place … [Read more...]
