Carron Dam Upstream Face

Carron Dam
Carron Dam is 400m long overall with embankments extending 140m each side of a 120m long central concrete spillway section.
The embankments were protected with in-situ concrete revetment panels which required strengthening.
Carron Dam
The original upgrading scheme involved replacing these panels but the duration of the work would interfere considerably with the water supply operations.
An alternative using a 250mm thick OSA overlay offered considerable savings both in terms of cost and duration.
Overall 2,000m2 of new revetment was installed in 3 weeks including a stop whilst Storm Ali passed through.
