PROJECT DETAIL

Removal and Disposal of the F/V Tasu

October , 2011

Global mobilized salvage gear, an excavator, bulldozer, and waste bins to the site. A containment pit was dug in the sand upland from the wreck, and lined with 60 mil HDPE, and was then backfilled with sand. Sections of the boat will be pulled up into the containment pit to prevent pollutants from leaking into the sand beneath the liner. After the vessel has been demolished and transported for disposal, the beach will be cleaned, including any contaminated sand on the liner, and the liner will be removed. The beach will be graded back to its pre-existing condition prior to demolition.
