Kaweah Powerhouse No. 1 Flowline Rehabilitation

AGC Constructor Award Winner
“Meeting the Challenge of the Difficult Job – Project $10 Million or Below”

The Kaweah Powerhouse No. 1 Flowline Rehabilitation project is located along the mountain-side above Kaweah Powerhouse No. 1.

The project included the demolition and replacement of 2,796 linear feet of flume at the terminal end of the conveyance facility.

Key features:

  • Implementation of Best Management Practices (BMPs) in strict compliance with a project-specific Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWP).
  • Demolition of 2,796 linear feet of existng flume consisting of Lennon sheet sections, timber substructure, and select footings.
  • Installation of new footings and modifications to existing footings using “Manta Ray” anchors, epoxy bolt anchors, and rock anchors.
  • Construction of a new timber substructure.
  • Installation of new Lennon flume sheets and handrail.

Due to the isolated location, the project required over 275 hours of helicopter support to remove materials from the demolition operation and bring in new materials and equipment. Most of the helicopter work involved precision flying to place concrete for footings and position bent sections onto 4-foot square pads. Syblon Reid specializes in this type of work and has many years of experience on such projects.

The project also required crews to work from ropes and rappel vertical rock faces to install the new footings and bent sections.

Syblon Reid completed the project without a single lost-time accident.
