Fairview Lake Dam Rehabilitation


FCE worked with the Cottonwood Gooseberry Irrigation Company and Utah Dam Safety to bring Fairview Lake Dam into compliance with current Dam Safety standards. Some of the concerns with the existing embankment had included: high concentrated seepage in the east dam, slope stability, and condition of the CMP outlet pipe. Work performed to evaluate the dam included: site surveying, geotechnical site and laboratory studies, hydraulic analyses, hydrologic analyses, geologic analysis, and geotechnical analyses of the existing dam features.

A rehabilitation design has been prepared to address dam safety issues. Drawings and specifications have been prepared and bids were solicited from qualified contractors. FCE performed construction observation and management during rehabilitation of the dam.
