Read on to learn more about how EWMI can make your wetland restoration project a breeze.
What was the Situation?
In 2017, a former chemical manufacturing company required remediation efforts including excavation in a creek and flood plains and wetlands restoration. An organic binding pesticide had spread across several acres of the site, migrating off site through a nearby creek.
Prior to beginning the surgical excavation, EWMI cleared about 15 acres of land for large equipment and constructed stabilized across roads to traverse the soft terrain on site. The stream was too large to install a bypass system, so EWMI constructed coffer dams to temporarily divert the water, drying out cells and allowing access the impacted creek bed.
Once the cells were dammed, EWMI removed impacted sediment, performed excavation and backfilled the cells, removed the coffer dams, and moved on to the next area. EWMI performed these tasks within the creek bed, along with the adjacent floodplain and wetland areas, and hauled impacted sediment to impoundment area two miles away.
The team then worked with an engineer to determine the seed mix and required plantings to restore the wetland areas.
