Tarago Reservoir

WES were engaged by MW to rectify surface cracking, poor grass growth and early signs of erosion of the embankment wall. The project scope included careful excavation at the embankment crest down to the dam filter material, placing graded filter material, geotextile and a capping of topsoil.

The correct placing and compaction of this material was extremely important to the correct functioning and longevity the embankment filter material. The entire top soil surface of the embankment was then fertilized and combined with good quality imported soil to enable grass to establish on the embankment.
