- Dewatering for Amphitheatre Construction
Foster City, CA (2002)
Page 1 of 15
A lakeside amphitheatre was one of the additions planned for the new
Foster City Community Center boardwalk. The contractor needed to dewater
the work area due to water quality concerns, The maximum water depth was
6', so an 8' x 200' AquaDam® was selected.
Since this was not a moving water application, only one restraining rope
was necessary. The pumps were turned on, and the AquaDam® was allowed to
unroll freely. One end of the rope was attached to the loader, and the
other was attached to the opposite end of the AquaDam®.
An overview of the work area. The loader is positioned
across the work area from the AquaDam®.
Once the AquaDam® was unrolled far enough out into the lake,
the loader was able to pull on the rope and turn it.
