The Design and Construction of the Wachusett Dam: Contractor’s Perspective and Contemporary Considerations Public
Downloadable ContentDownload PDF
The Wachusett Dam is located in Clinton, Massachusetts, and was constructed beginning in 1895. This project reviews the original construction of the dam as documented in archival photographs and reports. It also develops the construction schedule for the work directly managed by the contractor who took responsibility after October 1, 1901. It then analyzes the productivity of modern plant and equipment supporting construction operations and compares the results with the ones observed more than 100 years ago. The design of the dam’s structure is also reviewed.
