Clear Spring Ranch Sludge Line bank Protection


Description of Project: 

Colorado Springs Utilities requested Tezak Heavy Equipment Co., Inc. to construct the Clear Spring Ranch Sludge Pipeline Bank Protection project to address stream degradation that was endangering the operation of the sludge pipeline and to stabilize an eroded bank on Fountain Creek on Clear Spring Ranch. Erosion at the project location had resulted in the development of a significant vertical bank that continued to migrate westward. Stabilization was accomplished through the construction of double stacked grouted boulders, installation of steel sheet pile, and placement of riprap and other miscellaneous and appurtenant items in Fountain Creek. The project began approximately 750 feet upstream of the Owens & Hall Diversion Structure and extended approximately 1100 feet upstream.
