Alameda Dam Water Control Structure Moose Mountain Creek
Location: Alameda, Saskatchewan
Description: The Alameda Dam was built to control water level and flows on the Moose Mountain Creek and Souris River in Southeast Saskatchewan and North Dakota. Key elements included total fill placement of 5.5 million cubic meters, placement of approximately 200,000 cubic meters of rip rap, and the construction of 6 meter diameter culvert with bin walls for railway pass through. Key challenges involved constructing embankments on deep seated shear plane required controlled fill placement to achieve full height, and river closure on flowing creek during high precipitation construction season.
