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.
