The recovery services for the retaining wall of the Ouro Preto catchment lagoon, in Neópolis, continue at an intense pace. At a cost of more than R$2 million, the work on the lagoon will provide the space with greater security and be ready to receive new investments, such as modernizing the drainage network.
The work is carried out by the company TCPAV and coordinated by the Municipal Infrastructure Secretariat. According to Seinfra’s Assistant Secretary for Conservation, Lucas Pinheiro, work is progressing and uses the ‘stapled soil’ method.
“A technique that has proven to be an efficient solution for stabilizing slopes and small and medium-sized excavations. The great advantage of the method in relation to gravity walls is that the execution is carried out from top to bottom, which guarantees greater safety during the execution of the work, since the embankment is not exposed to the elements until the construction of the retaining wall is completed”, he explained.
“With the end of the services, Ouro Preto will be more modern and safe, ready for new interventions from the City Hall”, concluded Secretary Carlson Gomes, head of the Municipal Infrastructure Secretariat.
