Upgrade of Dam to modern safety standards
Geolyse were engaged to manage the Quality Assurance aspects and provide technical advice to Council for an upgrade of Lake Endeavour Dam in Parkes to verify that the works were properly constructed. Our experience with large dam upgrades has been called on many times to deal with the interaction of modern engineering and very old structures.
The dam was built in the 1930s and has undertaken a major upgrade to bring it up to modern safety standards and renew the valves and other mechanical works in the dam.
A new spillway, fuse plug, wall rising and outlet works are all included in the year-long project, as well as some complex prestressing.
