Dam Removal- Case Study


Courtesy of Environmental Remediation Contractor

The Tait Station Low Head Dam located in the Great Miami River in downtown Dayton, Ohio was constructed in 1935 to supply cooling water as part of coal-fired electric generating power plant (Tait Station).  To increase recreational use, riverfront revitalization and eco-tourism ERC was hired to remove the 83-year-old dam which was constructed of reinforced concrete with flashboards.  It was 569 feet long & 30 feet wide and consisted of four different sections.  After constructing a temporary causeway ERC removed & dewatered 10,000 CY of sediment followed by the demolition and debris removal of the low head dam.  A constructed riffle was then installed followed by grading and the establishment of the river banks & inner-channel benches.  The site was restored with seeding and planting of the disturbed areas.
