South Fork Intake Bulkhead Installation

The South Fork Reservoir is located outside Elko Nevada. AUS was contracted to install two dewatering bulkheads on the intake structure located in the bottom of the reservoir to allow repairs on the guardian gates. AUS lifted and installed two each 10,000 pound bulkheads at an altitude of 5300 feet and successfully dewatered the intake structure. Upon completion the intakes will be flooded and the bulkheads lifted back into their stored position.
