JOHN REDMOND RESERVOIR
ABOUT THIS PROJECT
The John Redmond Dredging Project was a design/construct dredging contract that included the hydraulic dredging of 3,000,000 cubic yards of material from the John Redmond Reservoir near Burlington, Kansas. It was the first contract in the United States for a State Government to dredge on federal property.
Dredge material was excavated and pumped through six miles of pipeline. Placed over three existing gas pipelines, with one river and five road crossings to the contractor-provided Confined Disposal Facilities (“CDFs”). The CDFs included the design and construction of 41, 350 lineal feet of dike, using 775,000 cubic yards of compacted fill. The CDFs will eventually be returned to agricultural use.
The John Redmond Dredge Project was named the winner of the Western Dredging Association’s (WEDA) 2017 Annual Safety Excellence Award for a Dredging Project.
