Jangyoo sewage treatment plant, South Korea

Consolidate the ground under a sewage treatment plant

One of the most impressive Menard Vacuum™ work site was in South Korea in the Pusan area. The technique was used to consolidate the ground under a sewage treatment plant located in a vast alluvial plain with 20 m to 43 m of compressible soft deposits (clay and silt). The maximum measured settlement reached 6 m. The project also involved the construction of a cut-off soil-bentonite wall and dynamic compaction.
