Repairs to the Steinaker dam are on schedule and it’s expected the reservoir will begin to be refilled next fall. According to Uintah Water Conservancy District General Manager William Merkley, much of the work to the dam has been complete and the plan is to start trucking fill back in next week. Last summer and fall, fill material was hauled out and stock piled and is now ready to be put back in place. “At the base of the reservoir is a new concrete structure as the slope had to be flattened to avoid any further slides,” explains Merkley, who says along with that the outlet works were extended further into the center of the reservoir. Merkley also confirms that the project is on schedule, on budget, and that the contractor has until next spring to finish but should be in a position where the reservoir can start to be refilled this fall.
