View looking across a roller compacted concrete (RCC) surface towards the right abutment. View looking across a roller compacted concrete (RCC) surface towards the right abutment. The upstream liner wall, made of re-cast concrete with plastic liner, is on the right.
View looking at the downstream face of the dam. View looking at the downstream face of the dam. Equipment shown includes a crane for placing upstream liners wall panels and the crane for placing RCC.
View looking at crane used to place RCC. View looking at crane used to place RCC. Notice the boom is not fully extended. A mass of concrete at the rear of the crane is used to stabilize the crane when the boom is extended.
