Description: In May 2005 Turnbull Environmental, began work on a two month project to provide all labor, equipment and supplies for implementation of a hydrologic and habitat restoration project on the Hernando Pool of the Tsala Apopka Chain-of-Lakes system.
The project entailed excavation and removal of two earthen berm roads containing approximately 4,000 cubic yards of fill material. Shoreline restoration via removal of remnants of a bridge, including pilings, concrete footings, and approach aprons were also an integral part of the restoration project. The project was completed ahead of schedule and well below the program budget.
Specific work included site preparation of designated disposal locations, separation of fill by material type, removal of fill, off-site removal of concrete aprons, bridge pilings, and bridge remnants, installation of composite turf reinforcement matting, re-grading of roads, installation and maintenance of silt screens and turbidity barriers to prevent sediment transport and turbidity problems, and grassing and mulching of disturbed areas.
Equipment: Standard Trackhoes, Loaders, Bulldozers, & off-road dump trucks
