Mt. Gilead: Work to resume on Upper Dam improvements

Posted on 7/27/2017 by Engineering in Mt. Gilead Lake Lower Dam

In recent weeks, workers have completed construction of the training walls and downstream wingwalls of the new dam and spillway structures. Placement of stilling basins and general maintenance of drainage were completed, along with excavating the downstream outflow channel below the Lower Dam. At the Upper Dam, the haul road has been improved and preliminary earthwork continued. In the coming weeks, workers will be finishing concrete placement at the dam gate control tower, begin placement of the Lower Dam embankment and other general construction items. Project completion is scheduled for the end of 2017.
