August 27, 2014

The East Branch Dam Safety Initiative took a step forward Wednesday as a multi-million bid was awarded for the construction of the East Branch cutoff wall rehabilitation project.
Layne Christensen Co. of Ruther Glen, Va. was awarded the $132,504,348 contract by the Department of the Army. The company specializes in water management, construction and drilling.
"The rehabilitation of the East Branch cutoff wall is a critical safety upgrade that is part of the Army Corps long-term safety assurance plan. Specifically, the project will improve the structural integrity of the East Branch Dam and address identified seepage concerns," said Congressman Glenn 'GT' Thompson (R-5) in a press release.
