Engineering a Pond Closure
Author: Brian D. Bracken, Houshang Esmaili, Masoud Moayer

The paper describes details on the closure of a 7-acre surface impoundment owned by Pinole Point Properties, a subsidiary of Marwais Steel Company. The site is located in an environmentally sensitive area in Richmond, California. A previous site owner used the impoundment as an evaporation and settling basin for wastewater discharged by a hot-dip galvanizing operation.
