  • Pleasant Hill Lake Shoreline Stabilization | S&ME Inc. : 40 years of Engineering Integrity
    material have washed into the Pleasant Hill Lake reservoir as a result of erosion leaving hazardous over steepened slopes along the lake s banks Pleasant Hill Lake is part of a system of reservoirs and dams in the Muskingum River watershed that provides benefits of flood protection water conservation and recreational opportunities The site at Pleasant Hill Drive primarily serves as a boat launch and docking facility for the Pine Hill Boat Club and area residents S ME investigated the site provided mitigation alternatives and developed plans to stabilize the shoreline S ME provided innovative engineering solutions in the preparation of permit applications plans and specifications in which minimal fill was placed below the summer pool of the lake or within the reservoir storage area A beach area was created along a portion of the shoreline within the project by flattening the bank and moving the toe of the slope above the summer pool Above the designed rock channel protection zone at the toe a biotechnical slope stabilization approach consisting of live stakes and a custom riparian area seed mixture were utilized to provide a green and sustainable erosion control solution Gallery Markets Government Parks Recreation Services Civil Construction Engineering

  • Chitty Water Tank Coating Rehabilitation | S&ME Inc. : 40 years of Engineering Integrity
    requiring landfill disposal and very important to the CCU was whether the new coating system would contain volatile organic compounds VOCs particularly for the inside of the water tank CCU retained S ME to assess the current condition of the tank and provide engineering recommendations for the tank coating rehabilitation S ME recommended removing the existing coating system using a blast track machine and a recycled blast media This process produces less waste and is more environmentally friendly than other removal methods which was important considering the close proximity of the tank to residential and commercial properties A highly flexible coating manufactured by the Sherwin Williams Company and referred to as a one coat system was recommended by S ME and selected by CCU The one coat system is more cost effective than the more commonly used three coat systems that require a primer intermediate and topcoat The one coat system resulted in a shorter coating application time and therefore shortened the out of service timeframe for the water tank The selected one coat system has properties that provide a 30 year service life and contain 100 percent solids technology Therefore volatile organic compounds were not released in the water
