Dodge City Packing Plant Lagoon Closure

MJE closed an evaporation pond in Dodge City in 2010. Due to many environmental guidelines and stipulations, this project included excavating 16,000 tons of hazardous materials from berms and hauling material to the landfill for proper disposal according to KDHE guidelines.

Location

Dodge City, KS

Challenge

There were strict KDHE specifications in place for this type of closure. Soil caps were new to the client at the time, however, MJE had extensive experience installing soil liners similar to the KDHE specifications for this project.
