Dredging the Back Nine: Stormwater and Water Treatment Ponds
SRS Crisafulli's FLUMP Dredge was in the news this spring for its role in meeting the opening day schedule at a unique Wyoming golf course.
The Casper Star-Tribune reported on the FLUMP's contribution to a remediation effort at the Three Crowns Golf Course, Casper, Wyoming. When we called to find out if the deadline had been met, we were told it was close, within one week.
Three Crowns Golf Course resides on the award winning remediation project of the former Amoco Oil Refinery along the North Platte River, as described at WyomingTourism.org.
The environmental management master contractor, Trec, Inc., chose the SRS Crisafulli FLUMP dredge. "Golf courses everywhere use these to clean these ponds," said Jesse Fuller with Atlantic Richfield, which also assists with the remeditation maintenance at Three Crowns Golf Course.
Crisafulli reports that many golf course ponds are being dredged to restore the irrigation capacity of their ponds.
Contractors from Grizzly Excavation reported on the ease of use of the FLUMP system. They "held a remote control, pushed a switch, and a motor activated the propeller to push an SRS Crisafulli FLUMP Dredge tethered to a cable strung across the major stormwater pond on the back nine of the course."
An SRS Crisafulli FLUMP dredge can "pass" a golf ball - which apparently were abundantly present in the Three Crowns Golf Course water treatment system ponds and stormwater pond.
