MINE WASTE ROCK AND LEACHATE RECLAMATION
Rising Star/Bully Hill Passive Treatment System Construction, $2,330,000 - ½ acre treatment cells were constructed at these site located on the Squaw Creek arm of Lake Shasta, CA. These projects included work in the mine shafts to collect the drainage, construction of a lined treatment pond, water level control unit, mixing and placing substrate material, sed-pond construction, and infiltration field installation. These projects also consisted of relocating approximately 12,000 yards of waste rock, reshaping existing waste rock piles, capping the cell with a 60 mil HDPE geomembrane and cover soil, construct necessary drainages around the cell, line ditches with rock, and implement erosion control measures.

LANDFILL CONSTRUCTION AND BURN DUMP CLOSURES
Chico Burn Dump Drake/Simmons, $1,750,000: 16,000 ton of contaminated soil from the Chico burn dump was gathered and loaded into trucks for disposal at a Class I landfill located in Kettleman City, CA. This was an interesting project as it had many obstacles to overcome to complete the project including; 1) Removing and reestablishing wetland areas; 2) Working around and not disturbing endangered plant species: 3) Working with the local air district to generate no visible dust while working and loading the soil. These obstacles were completed with the approval of all agencies involved.
