 Center for Transportation and the Environment (CTE) > Research > Project Detail
The purpose of this proposed research project is to develop methods for determining the lateral effects of borrow pits on the hydrology of adjacent wetlands.
One of the main differences concerns the water level in the borrow pit relative to the water table elevation in the wetland.
After the borrow material has been removed and the pit is "closed", the elevation of the water level in the pit will control the hydraulic gradient and determine whether the pit serves as a sink or a source for seepage to or from adjacent wetlands.

 KERR ENTERPRISES, INC. -- December 21, 2004
It frequently involves the cost of land or a royalty for material taken from the land where the borrow pit is located; it also often requires the construction of a suitable road to the pit.
"Borrow Pit" means an area of land where the overburden, consisting of unconsolidated rock, glacial debris, other earthen material overlying bedrock is extracted from the surface.
In addition, whether the scalping is located where the material is dug, or whether the user of the material from the pit is the owner of the pit or a purchaser of the material from the pit, does not change the character of the operation, as long as it meets the other criteria.

 Borrow pit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A borrow pit is a term used in construction and civil engineering.
In some cases, the borrow pits may become filled with ground water, forming recreational areas or sustainable wildlife habitats (one such example is the Merton Borrow Pit, near Oxford in central England, excavated to provide materials for the nearby M40 motorway).
In other cases, borrow pits may be used for landfill and waste disposal.

 Jamaica Bay Borrow Pit Evaluation Project Findings   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
These borrow pits differ in their configuration, but all are steep sided and considerably deeper than the ambient bay bottom.
Two pits in Jamaica Bay, located in Norton Basin and Little Bay, were identified in the DMMP as candidate sites, partly because of their isolated location, and because preliminary information indicated they were degraded environmentally.
The fine, fluid sediments that have accumulated on the pit floor result from the inability of the sluggish currents in the pits to transport, redistribute, and mix sediments that enter the pits.

 Brian Phillips, M.S., E.I.  -  Current Projects
Due to the relatively low elevations and flat topography, borrow pits in eastern North Carolina are often near or adjacent to wetlands.
There is concern that the borrow pit may serve as a long-term drainage sink and that after closure of the pit, the wetland hydrology of a strip of land adjacent to the pit will be affected.
For borrow pits, the goal is to prevent impacts on adjacent wetlands.

 Oregon Judicial Department Appellate Court Opinions
The trial court found that plaintiff's borrow pit was established before the opening of bids and was not on the project site.
The term "borrow pit" has not been specifically defined anywhere in Oregon law, but it has a well-defined general meaning: "an excavated area where material (as earth) has been borrowed to be used as fill at another location." Webster's Third New Int'l Dictionary 257 (unabridged ed 1993).
We conclude that the trial court erred in concluding that plaintiff's "borrow pit" was established "before opening of bids," and thus that plaintiff prevailed under OAR 839-016-0004(19)(c) (1997).

 Installation Reuses ‘Borrow Pits’
Borrow pits have notoriously been used as garbage pits in some neighborhoods.
These standards maximize the amount of fill dirt that can be effectively used from the pit, minimize erosion and sedimentation, preserve the water quality of adjacent streams and wetlands, protect air quality during excavation and prevent wildlife from falling into the pit.
Once a borrow pit has been abandoned by a contractor or military unit and no more fill dirt of adequate quality can be removed from the pit, and if there is an adequate water supply, the pit is turned over to the DPW Fish and Wildlife Branch for conversion to a fish pond.

 Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Tank Waste Remediation System, Hanford Site,
The potential of disturbing archaeological sites at Pit 30 is considered low because of its location between the 200 West and 200 East Areas, a vicinity where few prehistoric or historic sites have been identified (Duranceau 1995).
Borrow material used during remediation activities would be obtained from the potential Pit 30 borrow site so there would be a low probability of impacting archaeological sites.
The historic structure at the potential Pit 30 borrow site has not yet been evaluated for its historic importance, but the overall historic site impact potential is considered low.

Nonindigenous Occurrences: A population was established in a rock pit or borrow pit adjacent to the abandoned tourist attraction "Pirate's World" in Dania, southern Broward County, Florida, ca.
Shafland (1995b) speculated that the rock pit population eliminated in 1981 could be the source of the South New River Canal population, or it could be the result of a recent illegal introduction.
Remarks: Although information on the existence of the first Florida population was published, the exact location of the borrow pit was mistakenly identified as being in Dade County (e.g., Courtenay and Hensley 1979a, 1980).
