Sediment Removal and
Wetland Stream Restoration
ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Kilgore was contracted by the client to perform sediment removal and wetland and stream restoration at this federally directed and state administered national priorities list site. The site previously was a manufacturing plant for light bulbs.
Services performed on this site included excavation, stream diversion, water filtration, transportation and disposal, backfill and compaction, and restoration. Over the course of the project, Kilgore:
- Removed 1.41 acres of trees and brushes;
- Removed 3,443 cubic yards of arsenic- and lead-impacted sediment;
- Material handled 6,845 tons;
- Backfilled and compacted 3,200 tons; and
- Restored 1.41 acres, including 1.41 acres of seeding and planting over 100 trees and over 250 shrubs.
Kilgore was able to identify a flaw in the client’s restoration design that failed to properly dissipate the energy of the creek flow at the culvert discharge points. Kilgore offered the customer with a design solution and installed energy dissipaters to the satisfaction of the customer, property owner, and state.
