Clear Spring Ranch Sludge Line bank Protection

December update:  With all the wire mesh installed, the crew is now in full production; excavating bedrock, placing rip rap, and placing and grouting the stacked boulder wall. The crew is currently placing boulders with three excavators and going through quite a bit of material. Great job to the crew as well as THE Aggregate Source for keeping the rock coming. 

Description of Project:  Colorado Springs Utilities (UTILITIES) has requested Tezak Heavy Equipment Co., Inc. to construct the Clear Spring Ranch Sludge Pipeline Bank Protection project to address stream degradation that is 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 has resulted in the development of a significant vertical bank that is continuing to migrate westward. Stabilization will be 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 begins approximately 750 upstream of the Owens & Hall Diversion Structure and extends approximately 1100 feet upstream.
