Pella Dam Project


The project started around 130 feet below river. Since the inception of Manattsā€™ involvementĀ  with the project, they areĀ currently about 40-50 feet above river level. Ames Construction, the main contractor for the RRPH project, has been marvelous thus far; they even went so far as to build an ice plant at the Pella location to help control and maintain appropriate concrete temperatures. A heater has also been installed to keep the concrete warm during winter months. Ames has specific codes or recipes for different mixes of concrete for the project. Each code has different ratios of cement, rock, and water. The Red Rock Dam project is scheduled to be finished in 2019.
