Rock Blasting OperationsBased on subsurface investigations, the excavation for the new school consists of ledge removal. The preferred method for removal will utilize an operation commonly referred to as “Rock Blasting”. The operation involves drilling a grid of holes to a measured depth and inserting a small, calculated amount of explosives. The controlled detonation of the explosives fractures the rock for excavation with traditional earthmoving equipment.
