Project Description

Working with a specialty geotechnical construction contractor, Mr. Hardin developed an innovative granular bentonite and HDPE liner system that allowed sealing of an active 24-acre fly ash separation and recirculation pond.   Project activities included developing procedures for placement of the granular bentonite with a barge-mounted agricultural spreader using a GPS controlled computer system.   Served as engineer-of-record for the project that included developing documentation indicating 98 percent coverage of the pond bottom, and keeping the plant recirculation water system operational through the lining process.
