Lake Hiawatha Dam
Blackstone, MA

Pare was retained by the Town of Blackstone to provide dam engineering services to address deficiencies along a 300-foot long, 10-foot high earthen embankment dam.

Pare completed various analyses of stability, waves, and seepage, then undertook final design and the development of construction drawings for the full project.  The final project included slope improvements, spillway replacement, vegetation removal, installation of a partial cutoff wall, and full depth reconstruction of the roadway across the dam.  Construction was completed in the fall of 2007.
