SR 85 - Landfill Stormwater Control

Buckeye, AZ

Project Overview

Residing in Buckeye, this City of Phoenix landfill is the largest regional landfill in the State of Arizona. Secured through a competitive public bid process, Team Buesing was awarded the opportunity to excavate over 600,000 cy of dirt to create a drainage channel around the landfill, armor the slopes with Rip Rap and install several gabion drop structures in the channel floor.

The Buesing Advantage on this project was our ability to move large quantities of dirt in a short time frame and our ability to self-perform all aspects of our scope with the exception of some specialty work like guardrail and fencing.
