Dam Removal- Case Study
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.
