This was a repair of flood gates for a dam that holds back the
reservoir for a power company. Hunters had been shooting holes
in the steel doors. The bullet holes had rusted the
metal, and it needed a new paint job, as well as improving the
integrity of the doors.
The job called for an open-ended, 16' high x 350' long, AquaDam®.
This is a picture of the unloading of the cofferedam components.
The outside material of the AquaDams® were laid out on a clean, swept surface.
In this case it was a large cement parking area. Tarps were put down first
to reduce the abrasiveness of the cement.
The outside tube consisted of three double-ply tubes. This is one of
the inside tubes that had already been lined with plastic and was ready
for insertion into the outside tube.
