Dodge City River Sediment Removal

MJE removed approximately 225,000 cubic yards of built-up sediment from the banks of the Arkansas River in Dodge City, Kansas, within city limits. After removing the sediment, the riverbed was graded to provide a 70’ wide channel in the river with 6:1 side slopes and 1% grade to the existing jetty jacks along the levee. Upon completion of grading, MJE seeded and mulched 114 acres of the riverbed to prevent future erosion.

Location

Dodge City, KS

Challenge

Plans for grading the riverbed were provided, but waste sites for the project weren’t identified within the scope. MJE was able to find suitable sites to transport over 200,000 cubic yards of soil and negotiate prices with landowners to take the waste dirt.

Custom Solution

The City was looking for the most competitive pricing but also the most competitive schedule. Using GPS technologies, MJE was able to complete this project within the four-month timeframe. MJE uses the latest GPS technologies to onboard GPS receivers that allow scrapers, dozers and graders to plot accurate courses with little or no reference in in-ground markers. This technology allows us to create immediate benefits of speed and extreme accuracy.
