Congratulations to Memphis District project delivery team members for their recent work to rehabilitate 128 existing relief wells just south of Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
Relief wells significantly reduce the likelihood of a levee breach during high water events. Projects like this maintain and rehabilitate relief wells, and directly impact relief well performance and levee protection.
The contract was awarded to Kinder Brothers Excavating, Inc. on Sept. 16, 2020, for $1,547,550.
The contract was administered by the Memphis District’s Caruthersville Area Office, and the project was declared substantially complete May 25, 2021, months before the originally planned finish date.
Many thanks to project sponsor Little Drainage District for their continued support on work like this project.
