The South Embankment

This first phase of repair work is on the existing West embankment but the South and North embankments need to be repaired in the later phases. The existing South embankment is not as big as the main West embankment. The photo above is where the south canal exits the reservoir and it's almost a perfect cross section of the embankment.

We are planning to install a small concrete water gate or a slightly modified box culvert at this South canal, like in the photo above, so the top of this South embankment can be used as a road and the water supplied to the canal can be controlled.

This photo is of the Tim and wiL taking a soil boring at the South embankment. We were boring in the dark last night, being eaten alive by giant mosquito's.
