Homestead Lake Restoration

Contracted by the City of Homestead, Ryan was to restore an over excavated quarry lake to a proposed elevation of (-) 52.5 when in fact over two-thirds of the lake exceeded that elevation by 20-30 feet.

LOCATION: Homestead, Florida owner: City of Homestead contract: Over $2.8 Million


Blasted limerock was available fill from the adjacent areas of the mine. The contract with the City of Homestead Florida stated that there will be no pay for any fill placed above elevation (-) 52.5, so the system used for the work mandated very precise controls.


The Solution: Reduce the rock to a size that could be transported to the lake using a floating conveyor system. Then build a self-positioning placing barge that would dump the crushed material in locations determined by a satellite positioning system.


When the final measurements were taken, 400,000 tons of material was placed and no additional material was needed…another successful project.
