Dredging of Stonebridge and Blackburn Ponds
Metropolitan Infrastructure developed an environmental report and detailed plans for the dredging of contaminated sediment from an existing pond. This project required the design of composite retaining walls to protect properties along Turtle Creek from erosion and slope failures. The composite walls were designed to maximize the structural strength while providing a very aesthetically pleasing appearance through the use of Milsap and Luedder's limestone in a random Ashlar pattern.
The report included a detailed evaluation of various dredging and excavation options as well as coordination and communication with several environmental agencies including TCEQ and the US Army Corps of Engineers.
The construction plans included dredging plans, dam design, pond cross sections, site layouts, repair details for a concrete dam, tree well retaining wall details for permanent erosion control, and vertical stone shore protection walls. Metropolitan Infrastructure also provided quantity calculations and construction cost estimates for the project.
The project scope also included public meetings with city staff and the city council representative and construction administration duties.
