Not your ordinary Holiday Mixing

Here at Calaveras Dam, we are not mixing your typical holiday cookie dough. For 24 hours a day and 5 days a week, our project teams have been mixing soils for site stabilization. This process is necessary to stabilize the foundation of our disposal area for excavated materials in order to construct the dam.

Deep Soil Mixing is a soil treatment where soil is blended with cement and existing materials. In deep soil mixing, powerful augers are used to mix slurry, thereby stabilizing it for construction purposes. Below are photos of our work, day and night.
