The existing outlet control gates were inoperable at Lake McIntosh. In addition, several large cracks were found within the concrete vault walls.
Mid-way through construction of the vault.
Deere & Ault Consultants, Inc. designed a new outlet vault for the Lake McIntosh Reservoir Company. The new vault was a two-chambered, 12-foot by 8-foot cast-in-place reinforced concrete vault with a center wall, and outlet gates sized to provide water for irrigation and reservoir release.
Placement of the inlet pipe.
The vault was constructed in a small working area near a power substation. The project included coordination with various entities, including the power company, the local parks and utility departments, and the State Engineer’s Office.
