Franson Civil was hired by the Utah Division of Water Resources (Utah DWRe) to design the relocation of the outlet works for the rehabilitation of the dam and spillway at Millsite Reservoir, which is located in Ferron, Utah. The outlet works needed to be extended further downstream to allow for the rehabilitation of the dam. All drawings and specifications were prepared to meet Utah Dam Safety and NRCS standards.
There are several aspects of this elaborate and substantial multi-year project that have required and continue to require excellent service. First, we completed the project design phase. We assisted with the design of the spillway and outlet works improvements. We also provided drafting services for the entire dam rehabilitation project. Some of our contributions to the project included providing expertise in specific areas and reviewing the Utah DWRe design for constructability. Specific project features designed by Franson Civil include:
We are now working full-time to provide Utah DWRe with on-site field engineering oversight and construction management. Our work includes:
