TDI award

Following the issue of the EPA’s coal combustion residual (CCR) disposal regulations, Keller was hired to dewater CCR material at a power station. Keller worked on this project site for the past seven years and completed over 70,000 man-hours. Work has included deep wells, wellpoints, soldier pile and lagging, tiebacks, instrumentation, treatment, and operation and maintenance of the dewatering system. 

Vice President Greg Ziegler commends the project team, “The 71,000 man-hours have been performed without any major safety incidents. And in 2022, the owner recognized Keller for over six years of incident-free onsite work.” 

Greg continues, “Site Superintendent Eric Henry and Project Manager Andrew Buttitta were key leaders involved with this successful project, and we commend them for their efforts.”
