PLATORO RESERVOIR BULKHEAD GATE INSTALLATION

Platoro, CO

 

2009

 

SCOPE OF WORK

C&W recently completed a project installing a new bulkhead gate at the Platoro Reservoir in Colorado for the Bureau of Reclamation. The project involved core drilling into the existing concrete intake to install grout anchors that would eventually hold a seat in place for the gate. After the gate was installed, the intake was successfully dewatered for inspection by the BOR. Divers worked at an elevation of 10,000 feet to finish the job on time before severe weather conditions would have delayed the project.

REDONDO BEACH DESALINATION PROJECT

Redondo Beach, CA

 

2009

 

SCOPE OF WORK

C&W Diving recently completed underwater work to successfully test the efficiency of a temporary desalination plant. Work performed included successfully completing a pipe in pipe pull of 2100 linear feet of a HDPE pipe bundle. C&W also installed an onshore pump and pipe support structure, as well as an offshore pipe support structure and T-screen in the intake riser. The demonstration project by the West Basin Municipal Water District is part of an initiative to reduce the amount of imported water in the South Bay from 66 percent to 33 percent by 2020. "Southern California is faced with a fragile, out-of-date state water delivery system, predicted reductions in imported water supplies caused by climate change, continued statewide population growth, and other limitations,'' said Gloria Gray, president of the water district's board. C&W's work was instrumental in allowing for the withdrawal of large amounts of ocean water for desalination without killing sea life.
