dunes reservoir outlet works
Brighton, Colorado

Dunes Reservoir in Brighton, Colorado

The outlet works required excavation and reconstruction of a closure section through the dam, and tunneling beneath old Brighton Road to extend the conduit to a valve building to the east.

  • Part of Denver Water's North Complex - four reservoirs.

    Performed geotechnical and geologic exploration; seepage, slope stability and differential settlement analyses for outlet closure excavation and fill; and geotechnical design parameters for outlet tower design.

    Provided geotechnical support for construction, provided full-time construction observation and materials testing, and assisted in preparing final construction report and record drawings.
