Allied Ready Mix
DURATION: April 2018 - October 2018
RIVERBANK LOCATION: Downstream of the 2nd Street Bridge opposite Waynesboro City Shops and the wastewater treatment plant
RIVERBANK LENGTH: Total of 650 feet of bank remediation at two areas, with approximately 700 feet of bank between the two areas
ESTIMATED MERCURY INPUT FROM ERODING BANKS: 5.5%
OUTCOME: For the remediation at the two Allied Ready Mix riverbanks, the team had to construct a 1,400-foot construction access road and supply staging area in the densely forested area. Preparation work took almost two months to complete as extra care was taken to avoid damaging mature trees outside of the access road area. Although storms flooded the remediation area a few times during construction, very little re-work was needed. Portions of the riverbank that were remediated prior to flooding tolerated the high flows well.
