  • Curious if you had a Wetlands Permit to work on this dam?

  • If you had a foot of water over the top of the dam ,what’s going to stop it from easing out again ?

  • Never seen such a small dam ,pond looks too big for that dam .

    Miles BoehmerMiles Boehmer10 ditë më parë
  • *First,* given the big flood and washout--are you sure one pipe is enough? Maybe a second, or even a third. *Second,* trees on an earthen dam is a huge problem. The roots can penetrate the dam, then when the tree eventually dies the roots rot out leaving a bunch of open channels and the dam fails.

  • Couldn't you lower the inlet of the pipe by a foot aswell to help in flash floods to help prevent water going over the top of the dam

  • As many ponds I’ve done I stay away from culverts they plug up and seem to always wash out around them . 👍 put in a natural spill way with lots of rock problem solved . Unless you get a lot of rain hurricane rain then nothing is safe😉

  • i cant help thinking the bore of that pipe is way to small the flash floods just cant cope and cant drain away quick enough and will just back up and over the top like whats happend

    malc dickomalc dickoMuaj më parë
  • That guy needs a 3-4’ wide emergency spillway that’s 2” or so below the top of the drain pipe so the water never gets above the pipe level.

    • Save up enough to change the original and go to something that can handle the storms... It definitely needs the backup for something major. Such as: alworld.info/u/video/p4LKpn9_Z8ONjqs

  • I was curious why a bigger overflow pipe wasn’t put in while you had to redo it anyways. If that much water was able to flow over different parts of the dam during that rain, wouldn’t a bigger overflow help correct that? I’m no damn expert on dams.

    Bob BarkerBob BarkerMuaj më parë
  • If it was me I would have used crush and run to fill in the dam. Plus wet it down and let it sit up

    Dale DarrDale DarrMuaj më parë
  • The lack of proper compaction of the soil during the reconstruction of the embankment resulted in the blurring of the heaped soil during rainfall

    MajaMajaMuaj më parë
  • Chris, how much pressure are you actually putting on the fill by "patting" it down?

  • I don't understand why the dam owner doesn't just have you put two more pipes in, side by side. The time, labour and extra length of pipe would be nothing on the total bill.

  • They should really build an emergency spillway! That pipe can't handle tremendous amounts of water. They should also cut those trees off the dam, the roots will tunnel through and create leaks.

    Richard GoodingRichard GoodingMuaj më parë
  • I’m not there but I think that punching with the shovel probably isn’t enough to creat a resilient clay mass. The earth in the new fill probably isn’t as compacted as the earth in the rest of the dam. It will sink a little over time. It will stop erosion on the core of the dam though, so it’s probably ok. Also I hope you scraped the organic topsoil of before you added that top layer of clay. Further I would strongly recommend that all trees be removed from the dam wall and replant with researched shrubs that won’t root through the dam to the water. Good luck.

  • Just consider the first time a practice run 😉 You made it much better this time 👍 I am hoping that the customer(s) compensated you for all the extra work. If you hadn't done the original work, there would not have been a dam to fix, it would have been a build from scratch situation.

  • I would assume that having to repair the same overflow system, twice along with also eating the cost of the second repair including the fill dirt and the associated labor must have been really frustrating. Which brings a question to mind, that being, since the overflow pipe was already 75% washed-out by the storm because it was not large enough to support the storm's downpour, why did the landowner not allow you to replace the overflow system with a larger one during the second repair to prevent a third wash-out from some future storm ???

  • I would recommend talking to your state dam safety program before doing any kind of this work....that kind of pipe is not good for dam spillways and your compaction efforts are not nearly satisfactory
