In 2008, the State Engineer rated the Kaysville Dam as a high hazard dam because of the height and permeability as well as potential for damage to homes in the event of a failure. The State required the dam be breached. Several obstacles were overcome including funding, creating a cost effective design that would satisfy State requirements, rebuilding the dam structure, and necessary permits. CRS assisted with cost saving solutions while meeting state requirements. Design resulted in rebuilding the partial breach, new spillway, toe drain, and outlet works while keeping the rest of the existing embankment in place. A double membrane liner was installed across the entire upstream face of the dam to create an impermeable barrier and to detect leaks.
