Glines Canyon January 2012
Photos taken during the week of January 23, showing crews working on top of the dam.
Glines Canyon Dam & Barge
As the water level drops, the right side (looking downstream) of the dam becomes less accessible to the barge-mounted hydraulic hammer.
Commuting to Work
Workers are transported via 'man basket' to their job site on the right side of Glines Canyon Dam.
A Barnard Construction employee keeps close watch on the work crew below. Superior Blasting employees are on the crest of the dam, drilling holes in preparation for the controlled blast.
Three members of the drill crew are tied in to anchor lines while working on top of Glines Canyon Dam.
Atop Glines Canyon Dam
Drilling crew members tie into anchor points before beginning work. Glines Canyon Dam was originally 210 feet high -- workers have removed about 40 feet so far.
