Todd Swackhamer, P.E. presented with Daniel Ruffing, P.E. of GeoSolutions, Inc. at the 29th Central Pennsylvania Geotechnical Conference in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Their presentation, “A Case Study: Soil Mixing for Soft Ground Improvement at a Landfill,” summarizes a series of recent projects at the Seneca Meadows Landfill facility in Waterloo, NY that highlight a growing application of soil mixing; soft ground improvement beneath embankment slopes. Soil mixing at this facility has been used on three separate occasions over the last four years and will be used on an upcoming final phase of the work. The soil mixing performed at this facility is designed to improve the bearing capacity and shear strength of a very soft clay deposit to increase the stability of perimeter embankments during construction and placement of waste in the landfill. Todd and Dan discussed the design approach, construction processes, quality control, and lessons learned from these projects.
