Work continues on Sideling Creek Dam upgrade

My name is Steve Sanderson. I’m the Project Manager for the Sideling Creek Dam upgrade project. Currently been underway for a couple of months now. We’ve completed excavation at the toe of the dam. Next week, we’ll start putting in the filter material and then build up the rock berm at the toe of the dam. Other works on site are the upgrade on the spillway buttress walls So we’ve done the foundation now and and have started installation of the dowels along the existing wall. Downstream of the spillway, we’ve started construction on the plunge pool excavating out the new plunge pool and installing anchors at the end of the spillway. Works are on track for completion mid-2019.
