Great Lakes Naval Base, Great Lakes, IL: “They reacted extremely well to ever changing schedule demands and testing needs on short notice.” Joseph Albrecht, QC Manager, Blinderman Construction Company
The Indiana Harbor & Canal Confined Disposal Facility (CDF) will become the future storage site of contaminated dredged material, capped with water, as part of the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) efforts to clean the adjacent waterways.
Interra provided borrow site investigation including geotechnical and environmental testing, quality control testing for soils, cast-in-place concrete and steel. The dike encompassing the CDF is constructed of clay material meeting strict permeability standards, governed by the RCRA, IDEM, and EPA in conjunction with the US Army Corps on Engineers, to ensure that the outside environment is undisturbed by the dredged material. With nearly 200,000 CY of clay, Rausch constructed over 1300 LF of clay dike at the site exterior to close off the disposal area as well as 2900 LF of an interior dike dividing the site into two disposal cells.
This project was constructed on the former Sinclair refinery site, and contaminated soils, underground structures, and fuel storage tanks requiring adherence to strict hazardous site quality and safety standards.
