Congratulations to the Memphis District for completing a seepage remediation construction project on July 16, 2022.
This much-needed project reduced seepage along the St. Francis River levee. Seepage remediation berms help prevent water from passing under levees, which can later lead to sand boils and threaten the overall integrity of the flood protection system.
The Corps partnered with the Mud Slough Drainage District No. 1 to complete the $2,666,362 seepage remediation project in the vicinity of U.S. Highway 412, along the St. Francis River levee.
To complete the project, contractor SYTE Corporation constructed approximately 3,500 feet of seepage berms by placing 100,562 cubic yards of compacted fill in the seepage berm.
Congratulations to all involved in completing this vital project, and many thanks to our partner, the Mud Slough Drainage District No. 1, for their unwavering support and collaboration throughout this complex project.
