Dams are an integral part of many water projects. More than just excavation and earthwork, they include spillways, outlet works, internal drain systems, monitoring, and more. Each project is a unique combination of these individual components. Franson Civil Engineers has in-depth experience with storage, diversion, and detention dams and their associated regulations. We have worked closely with the Utah State Dam Safety office since 1991, cultivating an effective and efficient working relationship.
