Field trip to Folsom Dam construction site



On October 28th. we had a field trip, thanks to DrillTech and especially Mike, to Folsom Dam construction site. The main concrete wall of the dam was finished with most of the infrastructure in place. Geotechnically, the trip was interesting because of the curtain wall grouting was taking place. We got to see the grouting process and talk with the experts about how its done and how they make sure the job is done right.

Additionally, we saw huge volumes of land movement and could talk to a geologist about the local geology and what they had found out by building the dam.
