Topsoil removal & Reinstatement

Project: Strategic Alliance Water Pipeline Bexwell to Isleham

Client: Anglian Water

DMJ was awarded the easement works package in spring 2023 as part of the installation of a new water pipe which would transfer fresh drinking water from Bexwell pumping station to Isleham.

Issue

As part of the earthworks scope, 105,000 cubic metres of topsoil needed to be removed and stockpiled from various parcels of high-quality agricultural land without damaging the nutritional value of the soil.

Solution

DMJ mobilised a team of low-emission and low-ground-pressure excavators and bulldozers to strip the soil. Once stripped, the soil was bunded and sealed to maintain nutritional values. After the new pipeline was installed, DMJ returned to site and reinstated the 105,000 m3 of topsoil.
