Excellence in the Constructed Project

United States Society of Dams

Lake Brazos Labyrinth Weir, City of Waco

The labyrinth weir replaced a gated spillway and was constructed on a flowing river, over the foundation of the existing dam, without expanding the dam's footprint or rerouting the river during construction at nearly half the cost of earlier estimates. The weir design and phased construction plan utilized research and modeling conducted at the Utah Water Research Laboratories at Utah State University.
