Western Dredging Association’s Award for GLDD

Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation has been named winner of the Western Dredging Association’s (WEDA) 2017 Annual Safety Excellence Award for a Dredging Project for the John Redmond Dredging Project performed under contract to the Kansas Water Office.

WEDA’s annual Safety Excellence Awards are presented to organizations and project teams with exceptional safety performance in support of the WEDA Safety Commission’s goal of “raising the awareness of safety in the dredging workplace,” the association said in its release.

Thirteen organizations have received the award since its inception in 2008.

The John Redmond Dredging Project was a design/construct dredging contract that included the hydraulic dredging of 3 million cubic yards of material from the John Redmond Reservoir near Burlington, Kansas and pumped to five contractor-provided Confined Disposal Facilities.

The CDFs included the design and construction of 41,350 lineal feet of dike using 775,000 cubic yards of compacted fill.

Dredge material was excavated and pumped through five miles of pipeline placed over three existing gas pipelines, one river crossing, and five road crossings to the CDFs. The CDFs will eventually be returned to agricultural use.
