Lake Williams

Project Info

Once an ideal space for fishing, boating and enjoying the outdoors, Lake Williams in York, Pennsylvania is in the middle of a multi-phased, multi-year plan to repair its existing dam face, spillway, bridge and utilities. In addition to maintaining the dam’s integrity, this work will also keep up with dam safety regulations, which have changed since the dam was first built in 1912. York Water Company, who is spearheading the dam rehabilitation project, awarded Kinsley’s Industrial team a contract to:

  • Install an access road and temporary water barrier
  • Remove soils and sediment from the existing outlet pipe opening and headwall
  • Complete concrete modifications to enclose the existing headwall
  • Fabricate and install stainless steel liners in the newly enclosed headwall
  • Remove sections of the existing dam and install cast-in-place concrete grade beams to the top
  • Fabricate and install galvanized steel platforms, which cantilever from the existing pedestrian road over the dam
  • Install sluice gates, operator stems and trash racks provided by York Water Company
