The 12' tall, 85' long Self-Elevating AquaDam was installed just upstream of a hydroelectric feed pool overflow. The contractor needed the AquaDam in place to protect future concrete pours in case of high water levels resulting from a load rejection at the hydro plant. Culver, Oregon 2018
This project site was 800ft below ground level, in a deep canyon. At times, the road achieved a 25% grade, and 4wd was mandatory. Culver, Oregon 2018
Installation site prior to AquaDam placement. The Aquam will reach from the excavator to the large pile of meter-bags on the left. The meter bags were placed to support the AquaDam and keep it out of the low-flow channel that feeds the intake structure. Culver, Oregon 2018
