In Early 2002, J.M. Wilkerson Construction Co., Inc. was contracted to complete modifications to the Murphy Candler category 1 dam located in the Dunwoody area of Atlanta, GA.
Built in the late 1950’s, the Murphy Candler dam and park established a 135 acre park. The scope of work completed by JMW included the demolition of a portion of the existing spillway and the construction of an under-drain system. The new installations required grouting of a spillway pipe, construction of a wave protection beam and associated dewatering. Our teams were also responsible for modifications to the dam, erosion, sedimentation and pollution control.
