Uranium Ore Treatment Tailings Pond Remediation

With this paper, you get the remediation case study of “Pond 4” in Freital (Germany) built in 1957 as a settling basin for residues of the uranium ore treatment of the Wismut company. Thanks to geosynthetics, the construction of the cover system in a very soft subgrade has been made possible. You'll get a full description on the design, the selection of the materials and the installation phases that can be used as reference for alternative solutions in similar projects. Enjoy the paper with all the details.
