Challenge

Construct a slurry wall to facilitate dry mining operations and enable the mined pits to serve as surface water storage

ENTACT originally served this major aggregate miner and supplier by replacing a more than 9,000-foot cutoff wall. This successful job, and the relationship formed during the project, established ENTACT as a dedicated slurry wall contractor for the client. 

Our client’s subsequent needs included the construction of a large soil-bentonite slurry wall to minimize dewatering efforts and facilitate dry mining operations. Following the closure of mining operations, the site will serve as a surface water storage reservoir.

ENTACT Solution

ENTACT’s dedicated relationship with the client allowed for efficient work. Already familiar with the site, our team of geotechnical and construction experts developed plans that accounted for our client’s short- and long-term goals. 

In addition to constructing a new slurry wall, our responsibilities included the identification and protection of many subsurface utility lines that penetrated the proposed slurry wall alignments, as well as coordinating daily construction operations with active mining operations.

The Results

I wish to congratulate ENTACT for your hard work, which resulted in your setting a record production rate for slurry wall completion. More important than your rate of production is our knowledge that this work was done properly.
