(SANTA ANA, CA) The Board of Supervisors, at its Sept. 10 meeting, approved a $2 million contract with SWT Engineering to provide services to help remediate a landslide at Frank R. Bowerman Landfill in Irvine.
The landslide occurred in 2009 and the County took action to remediate the landslide in three phases – the third and final phase is scheduled to conclude this year with the construction of the East Canyon Mass Excavation and Buttress Fill.
SWT Engineering will prepare construction drawings and technical specifications, as well as design calculations and geotechnical engineering. The company will also be responsible for hydrology and hydrogeology, biological mitigation and other design support services.
