K.W.Emerson,Inc partnered with Amador County to install a 60 inch Corrugated Metal Pipe and inflatable plug to regulate water flow between Rabbit Creek and Camamche Reservoir . This project involved excavating the Causeway down approximately 50ft. using Cat 631 scrappers, D8R Bulldozer and a Cat 330 Excavator to an acceptable elevation. After installation of the 60 inch CMP a concrete slurry plug was pumped around the collar of the pipe to keep the pipe in place while back filling took place. Again using the 631 Scrappers dirt was hauled back in to the Causeway and compacted with a 815 compactor. Upon completion of back filling the road was base rocked and paved before returning to service.
