Fun company news
Blue Lakes Weir Update
March 31, 2017
In 2012, Brockway Engineering designed a ramped, broad-crested weir to measure the discharge flowing between the upper and lower Blue Lakes. The weir replaced an unstable rated section used since the 1950s, having very poor accuracy exceeding +/-20%. The new weir continues to function superbly with an accuracy to within +/-5%, while being low-profile and aesthetically unobtrusive.
Kilpatrick Pond Update
March 31, 2017
Brockway Engineering was proud to be part of the engineering team for the unprecedented restoration of the Kilpatrick Pond on world-famous Silver Creek in the Big Wood valley. The project achieved the objectives of reducing temperature increases, providing better fish habitat, establishing major areas of new riparian habitat, while still allowing the owner’s full water rights to be efficiently diverted. A key element of the project was our “over-under” diversion dam design, which allows water to pass over check boards or in a series of pipes under the dam in an infinitely-variable ratio. The dam also eliminated the blockage to fish migration by incorporating a natural fish ladder.
An Interesting Recent Success
September 14, 2012
A working ranch on world-famous Silver Creek needed to replace a check structure for an irrigation pump. The challenge: make it friendly to fish, impervious to ice, aesthetically pleasing, hydraulically functional, and safe to maintain. The catch: do it without putting any concrete in the stream! Brockway Engineering and the client settled on a "V-weir" drop structure comprised of natural stone materials. All criteria were met and the effect is impressive. This solution could become the new standard on Silver Creek for permanent check structures that won't pose a barrier to fish passage.
