The AquaDam® was pushing against the cement columns of the cement dam.
There are six doors here that need maintenance and painting.
This shows a view from a spot overlooking the gravel dam that holds
back this reservoir. To the right-hand side (not shown) are the
flood gates that need to be repaired.
This is a picture of the overflow channel which is critical for the
management of high rain events. We are approximately 1/2 mile away.
Standing on top of the AquaDam® looking down you can see fish
grazing on the algae that is growing on the side of the AquaDam®.
After being in the water for only 3 months, a great amount of algae
was growing on the side of the AquaDam®. Fish would line up by the
hundreds to feed.
Here we are looking down from the wing walls of the cement dam.
Notice all the ropes that had to be used to support the end of
the AquaDam so it would not fall down the steep slope.
