Balch Camp – 30″ LLO Gate Repairs

March , 2011

Our California region was contracted to assist with repairs to a 30” low level dam outlet gate. Phase 1 of the project included silt relocation efforts and a ROV inspection to monitor the progress. During phase 2, divers removed and replaced the existing cylinder after repairs to the gate.

Diving depths were in the range of 100 ffw at an elevation of 3000 ft. Due to this elevation and water depth combination surface decompression was utilized.
