MID NORTHSIDE CANAL FLUME REPAIR AND REPLACEMENT
Merced Irrigation District
The Northside Canal Flume Repair consisted of an immediate mobilization of SMCI crews to conduct emergency work on a failed section of flume. This section of flume was hauled off site while new pipe was laid for an emergency bypass along with pumps and generators. Excavated material was utilized to support the remaining flume and fill sacks and sand bags. Along with shoring and bracing, support columns and beams were installed along the remaining flume. SMCI ensured the flume was fully operating before being selected for a formal contract to replace the wooden flume sections with a new concrete canal system.
