Milltown Reservoir Diversion
Location: Milltown, MT
Project Type: Energy & Mining
Applications: Erosion Control
Product Used: ARMORMAX
Over 100 years of deposited mine tailings prompted the Montana Department of Environmental Quality and the EPA to embark on a major initiative to breach the Milltown Reservoir Dam and clean up contaminated sediments. But maintaining the flow of the Blackfoot and Clark Fork Rivers called for a potentially expensive diversion channel.
Incorporating the ARMORMAX® 75 in the upper cross section to protect against the highest design flows minimized expensive gabion mattresses for use only in the low flow channel section.
The result was over $1.1 million in savings, and a significant time and labor reduction.
