OPPD Foundation Repair

During the substantial flooding of the Missouri River in the summer of 2011, a support structure for one of Omaha Public Power District's large transmission lines became engulfed by the expanding river and experienced extensive scour and wash-out around its foundation. To solve this problem, Hawkins was retained to backfill the scour holes around the foundation with approximately 3,000 tons of sand and construct a sheet pile cofferdam around the entire foundation. The cofferdam was reinforced with large rip-rap around the outside and a gabion blanket on top to further protect the structure from any future flooding.
