T.Y. Lin International (TYLI) was responsible for the development of an Environmental Compliance Plan including training of construction personnel on environmental awareness for the replacement of a 20-inch water main and 54-inch sewer force main beneath the Government Cut Channel near the Port of Miami. The work was performed within the Biscayne Bay Aquatic Preserve (Outstanding Florida Waters) to facilitate the dredging of Government Cut project (to minus 52 feet) in order to accommodate the new cargo shipping capacity anticipated with the “New Panamax.”
TYLI provided environmental permitting support for drilling and tunneling activities and coordination and oversight of environmental related issues, including permit compliance and reporting. Additional services included monitoring environmental compliance associated with water quality, protected species and waste management in accordance to approved USACE, FDEP, and DERM permits. Environmental Coordination meetings were conducted monthly to review compliance with regulatory permits and requirements.
