Another great award for Geocomp

Geocomp has been awarded for their Seismic Assessments. 

Geocomp is honored to have been awarded silver for their Seismic Assessments Using Best Practices for Risk Management of TVA Coal Combustion Residuals Surface Impoundments project @ACECMA Engineering Excellence Awards,

In 2015, the Environmental Protection Agency issued the “Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) Rule” to address risks associated with failures of surface impoundments and landfills used to dispose of CCR generated by coal-fired power plants. The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) retained Geocomp to perform comprehensive seismic assessments after simplified and conservative initial evaluations by others indicated that six TVA surface impoundments would not comply with the CCR Rule for seismic stability.

Geocomp’s assessments using “Best Practices” resulted in all six facilities complying with the CCR Rule seismic requirements.
