Barden Reservoir Dam
Scituate, RI

Pare was hired by the Providence Water Supply Board to design the rehabilitation of the Barden Reservoir Dam, a source of public water supply.  Pare completed a hydrologic update of the Watershed and confirmed the inability of the spillway to pass the selected Spillway Design Flood (SDF).  Based upon this analysis, various overtopping protection alternatives were evaluated.

Pare prepared a Preliminary Design Concept Report, Technical Report, and the construction plans and specifications for improvements to the dam which included slope improvements, a toe drain system, and miscellaneous masonry repair work.

During construction, Pare provided technical administration and resident observation on a full-time basis.
