  • This project was Lake Needwood in Montgomery County, MD (Redland). We dredged 100,000 cy of sediment. We did a partial drawdown. The drawdown took about 2 weeks - they only needed to drawdown the lake about 4 feet; however, the County started the drawdown in September, after the main recreation season, and the pre-construction meeting wasn't until the beginning of November. They wanted to let the sediment naturally dewater as much as possible. Initially, they had a lot of rain and didn't get as much dewatering as desired, but eventually, the sediments dewatered enough to truck them to the disposal area. They did have to mix the sediments with a drier material for placement at the disposal area. There was no real additional dewatering -- they filled the disposal area and the end result was a filled in and mounded area (with slopes of 3:1). The mound ended up being 25 high with a big flat top! Not our design - we had a design that maximized the available land footprint, had 4:1 and 5:1 slopes and kinda blended into the area. We didn't want it to look like a big out of place mound of dirt! The contractor requested a field change for the disposal site which the County finally agreed to. They were lucky they had a big open space available that was used as a fill source for a recent highway construction project. The project pre-construction was November 3, 2010. They actually started dredging right after Christmas are completed the project just after July 4th 2011 -- so it took about 9 months. Marlene MartinFX Browne

    3. 3. Huntsman Lake Dam Rehabilitation Project Background • • • Huntsman Dam is operating under a conditional Operation & Maintenance (O&M) Certificate from the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, Division of Dam Safety, because its auxiliary spillway can only convey about 50 percent of the flows from the design storm. Planning and design for this project was completed in February 2013, and Fairfax County and Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District (NVSWCD) entered into a cost-share agreement with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to rehabilitate the facility in June, 2013. Project was advertised for construction on September 9, 2013.
