Announcement Date: January 5, 1993

1993: Anderson’s team of engineers and geologists begin the design to recontour the former Anaconda Minerals Copperton Tailings impoundments.

About the Design: The impoundment design included the creation of five earthen cells, (over an existing tailings facility), with a sophisticated cap to prevent infiltration and provide a surface for a sustainable vegetative cover. Work included design, management and oversight for placement of impacted soils from an associated residential yard remediation project, construction of the composite liner system (clayment, synthetic liner, gravel and topsoil), construction of the surface and below surface drainage control system, installation of riprap slope protection and revegetation of all disturbed areas.
