Good photograph of Waste Area #2 on project A-10C. This valley
originally was a fairly wide upper mountain meadow with two
in it. A narrow gorge between two mountains was the only way into
of the mountains is visible on the left side of the photograph. During
the design process, a need for a waste site north of Buckner Gap
photograph to the right) was determined, and this was the only
location to dispose of the approximately 2-3 million CY of material.
Southern Corporation (the contractor) is using this site to both
of waste excavation and store rock material for later construction
The road seen winding along the left edge of the waste site will
in place to reach a small cemetery to the left of the photograph.
Waste Site #2 will be graded, seeded and encouraged to return to a
mountain meadow environment. Photo taken June 1998.
