Ponaganset Reservoir Dam
Glocester, RI

Pare designed and prepared contract plans and specifications for improvements to the Ponaganset Reservoir Dam in Glocester, Rhode Island.  The reservoir is owned and operated by the Providence Water Supply Board, City of Providence, RI, and is a supplemental source of potable drinking water for the City. 

 

The completed work included upstream slope improvements consisting of grading and riprap placement; construction of a toe drain system and new low-level outlet headwall; construction of a new access walkway and fencing at the low-level control structure; channel improvements consisting of grading and riprap placement; construction of an infiltration basin; reconstruction of George Allen Road along the alignment of the dam; and miscellaneous concrete repair work.

During construction, the Water Supply Board administered the contract and Pare provided technical consultation and resident observation on an as-needed basis.
