I met with the folks at Davis & Weber Counties Canal Company in the spring of 2018. We were able to discuss the AquaLastic product and the ways that it may be able to help them with the concrete-liner issues that they were having at the time.
The folks at Davis & Weber had made several attempts to solve a very difficult problem with the Kaysville East Reservoir, we were able to look at the location during the water season and were invited to come back in the fall after the water was out of the system. A “Rough Proposal” was done so that Davis & Weber’s General Manager Rick D. Smith, would have some numbers to approach his board to get funding for the project.
I was able to return to the site in the fall of 2018 and make a dewatered review of the project.
The application contractor was able to start the project in the fall of 2018, but due to heavy snowfall, they had to leave and return in the spring of 2019 to complete the project. Davis & Weber had a seepage collection system built under the structure which has a “V Notch” weir to measure the losses out of the reservoir.
Prior to the AquaLastic application, the “V Notch” was running as much as seven inches of water. After the AquaLastic application, those losses dropped to less than 1/4 of an inch. A remarkable improvement in conservation of one of our nation’s most valuable resources: water.
These are the outcomes.
