This document concerns the New Hope Pond Dredging Operation - Oak Ridge Y-12 Plant. The background and experience with an industrial waste treatment pond designed for pH equalization are discussed. The original design provided for a 24-hour liquid retention; however, due to silting and sludge deposits within the pond, the effectiveness of the pond has been reduced by 60 percent. The plans, problems, and solutions for the restoration of this facility by dredging are discussed. Figures are included.
