ArmorMax® Chosen in Milltown reservoir diversion channel stabilization project for state of Montana case study
PROJECT SUMMARY Over 100 years of deposited mine tailings prompted the Montana DEQ and U.S. EPA to embark on a major initiative to breach the Milltown Reservoir Dam and clean up contaminated sediments. But maintaining the flow of the Blackfoot and Clark Fork Rivers called for a potentially expensive diversion channel. Incorporating the AR-MORMAX® ARVS in the upper cross section to protect against the highest design flows minimized expensive gabion mattresses for use only in the low flow channel section. The result was over $1.1 million in savings, and a significant time and labor reduction.
