Capital Improvement Multiple Lake Project- Huntsville, TX
A large multiple lake project Soilmovers LLC undertook involving the building of 3 lakes and extensive road construction, drainage correction and land clearing on a high fenced 800 acre tract that was designed as a hunting preserve. This project was challenging because the owner required the aesthetics to be just exactly right while preserving and not disturbing the Wildlife and Timber Management programs which were already in place. A large structure which contained an apartment and garage/storage was already in place. The substantial showcase fishing and recreation lake was engineered to fit in naturally with the very large building which dominated the surroundings. An interesting note: The land owner desired a 4th lake on the property and we declined citing less than optimum soil conditions to construct a viable dam in a watershed area which was prone to a large runoff volume. The land owner proceeded after we finished with the construction of the fourth lake. He chose a local contractor who assured him a substantial concrete spillway would suffice. We flew over the area after a major Tropical Storm inundated the area. Workers were busy with torches cutting away rebar on the concrete spillway which had been destroyed along with most of the dam. The area below the dam was a tangle of concrete, downed trees and feet of mud. It looked like a large bomb had detonated in the immediate vicinity of the dam. The structures we built were not affected or marginalized.
Experience and integrity always count.
