- 2” backflow prevention device and vault
- (1) 2” gate valve, (3) 1” gate valve
- 410 LF 2” HDPE, CTS water service pipe
- 110 LF 1” HDPE, CTS water service pipe
- 767 SY grass restoration & 681 SF gravel restoration
- Labor and equipment to package and load low‐level contaminated waste onto transport truck
LiDAR Monuments Project
This work was conducted to construct permanent high quality and consistent LiDAR (light detection and ranging) survey control points and markers to be utilized on future aerial surveys at the Weldon Spring Site. Aerial surveys such as LiDAR and photogrammetry have been and will continue to be an important tool for the long‐ term management of the site.
