  4. VPR - Swastika Mine Stream Crossing Maintenance Project
The VPR – Swastika Mine Stream Crossing Maintenance Project is located about 4.5 miles northwest of Raton in Colfax County, New Mexico. The project area is on private land within the Maxwell Land Grant.

The focus of this project is to fix a culvert installation that was constructed as part of the Swastika Mine and Dutchman Canyon Reclamation Project in 2012.  Heavy rains caused two 72”-diameter culverts to fail at a stream crossing. The culverts will now be removed and replaced with a low water crossing.  The project includes the following work:

  • Earthmoving to move the existing road crossing fill and rock to the final storage area as specified.
  • Removal and disposal of the existing culverts
  • Grading of the crossing as specified
  • Import and placement of rock at the crossing as shown in the drawings
  • Final grading of low water crossing and fill deposition areas
  • Seeding and mulching of all areas disturbed by construction
  • Seeding and mulching of areas in the previous phase of construction that show poor plant growth
  • Construction of three road/traffic signs
  • Sediment and erosion control measures, including monitoring and maintenance.

The Contractor shall leave project areas in as good or better condition than before disturbance.
