The Ten Mile Creek Regional Wastewater System is part of the Trinity River Authority’s advanced wastewater collection and treatment, which serves a densely populated area of the southern Metroplex, accounting for more than 125,000 residences.
In 2020, Dallas County recognized the need to install large stone riprap around the Authority’s existing wastewater aerial crossing at Ten Mile Creek. This crucial step would prevent erosion and exposure of the sewer lines, which could cause damage to the ecosystem and create a potential health hazard.
Lindamood installed almost 16,000 tons of riprap along the creek bed to protect two parallel sewer lines, each measuring 72 inches. Drawing on their experience, the Lindamood team had to overcome the challenge of ever-changing water levels, while maintaining the safety of their crew. Slip and falls were an ever-present hazard due to the use of large boulders. Daily meetings and careful project oversight resulted in zero injuries and near misses.
