Improving Debris Management
The 1985 flood was devastating for the surrounding communities and resulted in a large loss of property. At one point, water was just one foot below the top of the parapet wall. The debris buildup had reduced spillway capacity by roughly 35% which lead to higher flood elevations and potentially triggering a dam failure.
Following extensive study, the dam’s owners , in 2013, enacted a debris management plan using Worthington’s proven TUFFBOOM debris barrier system. The 1,000 foot long debris barrier was designed and positioned to maximize its effectiveness by directing debris towards a special trash gate where debris could more easily be passed. Worthington is very proud to have been chosen to participate in this critical debris management project.
