MUCK UTILIZATION PLANNING. URBAN TRANSPORTATION TUNNELING: A HANDBOOK OF RATIONAL PRACTICES FOR PLANNERS AND DESIGNERS

This handbook alerts transportation system planners and designers to planning methods which can lead to more efficient use of earth and rock materials produced during excavation for transportation tunnels and large excavations. The earth and rock materials produced from tunnel operations are commonly described by the miner's term, 'tunnel muck'. Tunnel muck has been traditionally treated as a waste product of the construction process. This handbook documents the results of a study of alternative uses for tunnel muck including use of muck as backfill materials within the transit project. The suggested procedures are consistent with construction methods and project management procedures.
