Lake Independence is a drinking water lake located near Truckee, CA. The intake channel needed to be isolated and dewatered so repairs could be performed on the intake structure. A cofferdam to control the 15' of water depth was achieved by installing a 21' high AquaDam, backed up with a 16' and 10' high AquaDam. Lake Independence, California 2012
