Voorhees Highwall – Columbiana County, Ohio

Fix and repair unsafe conditions at a prior strip mine in Ohio. Moved 50,000 cubic yards of fill, dewatered the site, and cleared 9 acres. Restored the area with erosion control systems, and added new drainage swales and structures. In the end, we turned the Voorhees Highwall into a sloping meadow with improved water quality and now lacks any erosion concerns.
