Members of the Huntington District’s Muskingum Resident Office visited East Branch Dam Safety Modification Project staff at the resident office in Wilcox, Pennsylvania, Oct. 30.

Personnel from both districts met to discuss and compare notes about project quality assurance, share information, and tour the site.

The Muskingum Resident Office oversees the $44.3 million Bolivar Dam Safety Assurance Project near Bolivar, Ohio. The contract, which includes a dam cutoff wall, was awarded approximately seven months prior to the award of the $132.5-million East Branch Dam Cutoff Wall Rehabilitation Contract.  Currently, earthwork is ongoing for the Bolivar Dam work platform construction while East Branch prepares to start its project.

Participating in the visit and discussions were Huntington District’s Muskingum Resident Office staff Matt Folk, resident engineer; Mark Wheeler, project engineer; and Jonathan West, a civil engineer. Josh Kinnear, a civil engineer; Kevin Cannon, project engineer, and Kim Warner, resident engineer participated from Pittsburgh District’s East Branch Resident Office.
