Strawberry Dam Weir S-133

Completed in 2011, Syblon Reid was awarded a contract to remove and replace an existing weir in an active streambed.

The project is located directly below Strawberry Dam at Pinecrest Lake.

The scope of work included installing cofferdams upstream and downstream of the weir area, excavating and backfilling within the streambed, and placing 60 cubic yards of concrete for the weir structure. To isolate and dewater the work area in the stream, a bypass system, utilizing two 30-inch diameter high density polyethylene (HDPE) pipes, was installed to handle a flow of 60 cubic feet per second. As this was an environmentally sensitive project, revegetation and restoration of the work area was necessary.

Located in a heavily forested area with steep terrain, project access was limited to walking trails below the dam face. Helicopter support was required to conduct heli-logging and to bring in all equipment, materials, and concrete.

Syblon Reid completed the project without a single lost-time accident or OSHA recordable incident.
