West Fork Eno Wins ACEC National Honor Award

We’re excited to announce that the West Fork Eno Reservoir Phase 2 Expansion project has won an American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) National Honor Award!

Construction of an innovative and efficient piano key weir and modifying spillway components to meet NC dam safety regulations were key components of this project. This rehabilitation plan was designed to reuse as much of the existing spillway as possible to both save on costs and be environmentally sustainable.

This project presented many challenges including discovering the underdrain system was not built as shown on the original design drawings, the need for hydro-demolition to roughen concrete surfaces prior to overlays, the need to cut a slot in the spillway sidewall to allow for a steel sheet pile cut-off to be installed.
