We defeated Germany, Japan, and Italy in 3 1/2 years and 6 to build a dam? They could do it in a week if they got to it.......

That's not a dam...........this is a dam. Actually, Lake Murray has a dam, and a back up dam.



After setting a North American record for the most roller-compacted concrete (RCC) placed in a single day—18,590 cubic yards—the Saluda Dam Remediation Project has been honored with the American Society of Civil Engineers' 2006 Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement award.

The project involved building a backup replacement dam for Saluda Dam, which impounds the 55,000 acre Lake Murray west of Columbia, S.C. This backup dam is necessary because if another Charleston earthquake occurs, as it did in 1886, the existing dam would fail and put more than 100,000 lives at risk.

When completed in 1930, the 1.5-mile, 200-foot-high dam broke a number of records. It was the world's largest earthen dam, the word's largest hydroelectric dam, and impounded the 78-square-mile Lake Murray, the world's largest man-made lake.

In addition to 1.3 million cubic yards of RCC, workers placed 30,000 cubic yards of conventional mass concrete and 65,000 square yards of precast concrete facing panels using more than 10,000 cubic yards of 5,000-psi concrete. The RCC design mix used 150 pounds of cement per cubic yard and 150 pounds of bottom ash that had been landfilled on site for the last ten years.
