#265 Dewatering Refining Facility

This shipping canal in Illinois had accumulated contaminated oil sediments from a decommissioned refining facility. A pilot study was initiated to evaluate the performance of hydraulic dredging and subsequent Geotextile Tube dewatering of the sediment. Over an 8 day period, 400 linear feet of Geotextile tube was pulse filled to capacity. WaterSolve, LLC provided the tubes, polymer, make-down equipment, and technical service to perform this study.
