Spillway Pump and Piping

Morris Sheppard Dam - Possum Kingdom Lake

The Morris Sheppard Dam spillway section consists of nine bear-trap gates that pass floodwater downstream. To assist with gate maintenance activities during low reservoir conditions, a spillway pump and piping system is utilized to supply pressurized water into the underside of the gates. A condition assessment of the spillway pump and piping system is complete and a design for improvements is in progress. A request for bids for construction is estimated for FY23 Q2.

Estimated Request for Bids: FY23 Q2

Low Flow Facilities Improvements

Sterling C. Robertson Dam - Lake Limestone

During inspections, corrosion defects and hydraulic design issues have been observed on various components of the low flow facilities. This project will evaluate low flow facilities components including but not limited to sluice gates, gate operators, ball valves, bulkheads, piping, etc.; as well as considering access improvements for maintenance personnel and dewatering.

Estimated Request for Proposals: FY23 Q2

Bay 9 Transition Beam Remediation

Morris Sheppard Dam - Possum Kingdom Lake

During inspections, a leak was discovered inside the dam. After investigation, it was theorized that the upstream transition beam was cracked, and possibly the primary source of the leak. This project is to perform a detailed evaluation of the leak and to develop and implement a repair method to correct the leak. This does not pose a dam safety issue.
