Lake Loramie: New Spillway Taking Shape

Posted on 4/27/2017 by Engineering in Lake Loramie Dam

Workers are building and placing forms and performing a lot of concrete work as the new spillway base begins to take shape at Lake Loramie State Park.

Work activities during April:

  • Concrete placement at the bank floodwall nearly complete;
  • Continued Phase I subgrade excavation;
  • Completed Phase I sheet pile installation;
  • Excavated for the cutoff walls;
  • Installed temporary sheeting to retain lake bed sediment;
  • Initiated formwork and reinforcement for the cutoff walls and spillway slab; and
  • Poured the stone basin cutoff walls.

Near-term work activities:

  • Continue to backfill around the bank floodwall;
  • Place concrete for the knee wall and cutoff walls;
  • Finish installing piezometers under the spillway and stilling basin;
  • Continue pumping water between the cofferdams to manage water control.

Project completion is scheduled for spring 2018.
