Nelson Waste Water Holding Ponds
Two crews were initiated onto the site with the job taking 2 weeks to install a total of 1482m3 of rock which, totalled 1949 linear M of bund protected. The material was crushed by a subcontractor at a local quarry before being trucked to site, it was then placed with just 5tonne excavators as these were the largest that were able to fit on the bunds.
This was an interesting exercise for those involved with the staff members working on the bund required to wear life jackets at all times. There were times the wind was causing the effluent to spray onto machinery and personnel causing the job to stop due to health concerns for the staff involved.
