Barr project wins safety award

July 10, 2018

Sevenson Environmental Services, Inc., the contractor to Consumers Energy on the Flint River sediment remediation project designed by Barr, recently received a Safety Excellence Award from the Western Dredging Association (WEDA) for the project. Located on the Flint River in Flint, Michigan, the project included the removal of 84,000 cubic yards of impacted sediments and capping using more than 115,000 tons of material. Sevenson safely logged more than 65,000 hours on the project in eight months with no lost-time injuries.

Barr designed the remedial actions for this project, and our work included geological and groundwater modeling; hydraulic, geotechnical, structural, and civil engineering; odor- and emissions-mitigation design; and construction oversight. Click here for more information about the WEDA awards.
