Description:

Join us on November 14, from 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM Eastern for Spillway Gates and Dewatering Systems - Lessons Learned and Practical Solutions. This webinar will cover lessons learned in gate rehabilitation projects and issues associated with deciding between a rehabilitation project and a gate replacement project. Dewatering options for a spillway gate rehabilitation project will be discussed.

Many times, the extent of the rehabilitation issues is unknown until the gate has been dewatered and the seals and coatings have been removed. Rehabilitation can range from relatively straightforward seal replacement and recoating to more complicated member strengthening or cutout/replacement and trunnion anchorage strengthening, and these efforts will be discussed. Other items to be discussed include seal hardware, installation and adjustment, procedures for testing the gate for leakage, field inspections, and commissioning following a rehabilitation project. 

Learning objectives attendees will receive from this course:

  • Decision-making for gate rehabilitation versus replacement.
  • Improvements to gate design and specifications.
  • Evaluation and retrofitting of gate anchorage.
  • Dewatering systems and applications to dam projects.
  • Construction findings from gate rehabilitation and remedies.
