Contract awarded for Tennessee dam upgrade
The Nashville District of the US Army Corps of Engineers has awarded Thalle Construction a contract worth almost US$43m (£33.2m) to build a concrete reinforcing berm downstream of the Center Hill Auxiliary Dam.
The work also includes stabilization of a previous rock cut near the main dam. The contract is the third and final major package of work related to dam safety at Center Hill Dam, following earlier work to address seepage.
“This final major construction effort will reinforce the earthen auxiliary dam, also called the saddle dam, and reduce the risk of either a seepage or an overtopping failure of this structure,” said project manager Linda Adcock. “The construction will complete a series of major construction efforts since 2008 to significantly improve the long-term reliability of the dam and to ensure public safety.”
