Kurtz Bros. Cuyahoga River Bed Load Intercept

Project 824-15
Cleveland, OH

This pilot project seeks to reduce the cost of traditional dredging operations by installing proprietary sediment-collecting equipment into the Cuyahoga River. Installation includes a 30’ long river sediment collector, a 25’ deep precast manhole adjacent to the river for a sediment pump, 46’ long screw conveyor, 54’ long belt conveyor, 1½” to 8” HDPE piping, and electrical service. The river sediment collector is anchored to the river bed with driven tipping plate soil anchors.
