The Coeur d’Alene Trust selected North Wind Construction Services, LLC for the East Fork Ninemile Creek Waste Consolidation Area and Infrastructure project. The project is located seven miles north of Wallace, Idaho, within the Upper Basin of the Coeur d’Alene River.
North Wind, in conjunction with its teaming partners Zanetti Brothers, Inc. and Peak Sand & Gravel, will build a waste consolidation area that will support cleanup projects in the Coeur d’Alene Basin. Through the project, contaminated soils and mine tailings will be taken from the old mine sites throughout the Ninemile area and contained into a much smaller, isolated location to help control the primarysources of heavy metals, including lead and zinc. Work on this project will be carried out under the Environmental Protection Agency’s record of decision for the Superfund cleanup.
According to North Wind Construction Services President Kevin Redmond, “We are extremely pleased to continue our ongoing relationship with the Coeur d’Alene Trust and are committed to environmental cleanup in the Coeur d’Alene Basin. This project will be completed using primarily local, highly skilled labor resources.”
North Wind Construction Services is based in Kellogg, Idaho, and provides heavy civil construction services with an emphasis on environmental remediation and reclamation. Learn more at www.northwindgrp.com.
