USS Minntac Fine Tails Pump House

Due to the current gravity=fed tailings basin reaching capacity, the main purpose of the pump house project was to be able to pump waste slurry to the tailings basin which will be raised upward via a series of earthen dikes.

Notable construction activities included: LCI being awarded the civil work- clearing, grubbing, dewatering, excavation, backfill, forming and concrete.

The excavation was approximately 50' deep and included 90,000 cubic yards of material that was removed.

Foundations included 300 tons of rebar and 4,500 cubic yards of concrete.

LCI was also awarded the pre-engineered building phase of the project.
