Gilboa Dam – Construction Survey, Gilboa, NY


Hurricane Irene, a powerful storm that almost wiped out the Town of Prattville in Schoharie County in August of 2011, also did major damage to the nearby Gilboa Dam. NYCDEP had commissioned a major reconstruction and improvement project for the dam.
Barnard Construction, based out of Montana, is currently performing a $350M repair and reconstruction job on the dam and EWF is providing daily on-site construction surveying.
EWF had also performed the boundary survey for the project limits, hydrographic survey with GPS positioning near the dam face area and established primary control for the project using a monument disc in the easterly abutment.
