Solidification of Storm Water Pond Sediment

Solidification of Storm Water Pond Sediment

The naturally occurring sediment in this storm water management pond had exceeded the pond's designed capacity. The regional conservation authority planned the remediation of this pond to involve the removal of this sediment. The volume of sediment to be removed was very large, thus the cost to transport and dispose of this wet muck would be very costly.
