Award-winning environmental reclamation.

Reclamation of an abandoned landfill near the Woodrow Wilson Bridge project

The unlicensed landfill was originally built in a tidal flat; trash had been buried in an unlined area, which subsequently allowed leachate to contaminate the Anacostia River.


Glover worked below the tide zone, removed the trash, and rebuilt the wetland channels.

In order to reach the affected area, extensive use of synthetics allowed Glover to build roads through the marsh. Trash was then removed from the wetlands to the newly built landfill, which was capped according to industry standards.


  • Consecutively showing high marks for erosion control on the site, Glover received multiple bonuses from the State Highway Department.
  • Upon project completion, Glover was awarded the 2009 Globe Award for Environmental Excellence by the Transportation Development Foundation.
