Medford, OR

A testimonial from the satisfied customer can be viewed by clicking here.

A concrete check dam must be constructed in midstream to force water into an existing intake structure. The water flow must be diverted before concrete can be poured. In the past, a check dam was simply constructed by machinery out of gravel, but this is no longer environmentally acceptable.
To ensure that a good seal is achieved, all large rocks must be removed from the path of the AquaDam®. In this case, the rocks were placed in such a way that they will help support the AquaDam® once it is installed.
