8.5 Sheetpile…on a railroad property and in a river…what could go wrong?

During installation of a hanging barrier wall to retain NAPL on site, a number of difficulties were encountered that required the Property Owner, the Owners Representative, the Prime Contractor and the Subcontractor to evaluate options to overcome the problems. Boulders, debris, bridge foundations, fiber optics, and site constraints had to be overcome while maintaining the schedule, managing the costs, and making progress to achieve the project goals. Work included providing scour protection at the base of the wall in the river, installing a deadman system, abandoning former recovery trench components, and protecting the structure from future dead and live loading on the deadman system.
