LAKE MACDONALD DAM INVESTIGATIONS

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Investigation works were carried out at three points in the dam’s 200mm thick concrete spillway. The works involved cutting a 700mm x 700mm square out of the face of the dam, excavating down to expose and inspect the anchor bars below. Each investigation point had to be opened and reinstated in one shift. The client was able to then gather important data required for future maintenance of dam which is the main water supply for Noosa Shire Council.
