As told by GSI Rockfall Division Director: “I am at the [mine] now and the truck with the equipment from the warehouse just arrived. Environmental issues are extremely important in the mine so any equipment arriving on site has to be pressure washed and cleaned. Although they ask this of every contractor that arrives on site, they always seem to have to do a secondary washing here with their own people (just the way it always seems to turn out). Our people at the warehouse did such an awesome job of cleaning and taking the client’s concern to heart that they do not have to do a secondary cleaning and complimented us for such a great job.
Heavy rainfall and inadequate drainage caused failures of two Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) walls that were constructed within the Shiloh Ridge Condominium development located in Kennesaw, Georgia.
