Bolivar Seepage Barrier

Construction of the Bolivar Dam seepage barrier remains ahead of schedule, it is currently 90 percent complete.  Members of the Huntington District  staff had the rare opportunity to visually view a section of the seepage barrier when it was excavated to allow the construction of an adjacent panel at a lower elevation.  The visual inspection confirmed that the construction methods are producing a high quality seepage barrier with uniform wall thickness and geometry.
