Features of the project include expansion of the existing dike base (step-in), dike raising, ditching, and spillway system modifications. The dike step-in will be constructed to the inside of the existing Cell 2 and Cell 3 dikes. The step-in will serve as the base for the dike raise which will increase the existing top of dike elevation, presently at approximately 39′, to a top elevation of 43′ at the Cell 2 and Cell 3 dikes and the cross dikes. The Cell 1 dike will be topped off with an approximate 2′ raise to bring it to elevation 42.’ Excavation of a portion of the existing Cell 2 and Cell 3 dikes will be required for placement of geotextile. The interior of disposal Cell 2 will be ditched in order to drain and dry the material. Spillway modifications will include relocating the spillway riser boxes clear of the new dike step-in footprint and extending spillway pipes. Borrow material for the dike step-ins and dike raises will be available within the interior of Cell 2 and Cell 3.
