April was a productive month after the spring runoff came and went. At Secord, de-watering engineering, sheet pile driving, and remaining site work kept everyone busy. At Smallwood, auxiliary spillway construction and site preparation advanced. Most of the submittals for the auxiliary spillway materials and methods got approved for both sites. The construction of these spillways is a critical path for both projects and the trajectory for the summer construction looks bright.
Fun fact: 198 people have gone through Fisher Contracting's safety orientation.
Welcome to the first monthly dam construction update! We will continue this series throughout construction to keep the community informed. Once construction work begins on Edenville and Sanford dams we will publish regular updates as well.
