Raising the Wickets
 
01:49
Locks and Dam 52 is just one of two such structures left on the Ohio River that uses wooden wicket dams to maintain a navigational pool during low water. It's a feature of Ohio River navigation that will become history when Olmsted replaces the deteriorating locks and dams 52 ad 53 with twin 1,200-foot lock chambers and metal wickets.

Dam builders critique lean construction
 
01:26
Commonly called the "war room," the Olmsted Locks and Dam project operations control center is housed in trailers on the edge of the yard where the gigantic concrete dam shells are fabricated before being placed in the Ohio River. On its walls are boards covered in color-coded sticky-note paper, such as red for iron workers and orange for carpenters. The notes represent a three-week production plan in single-day increments for current and future work. Team leaders, foremen and superintendents take turns describing on-going and upcoming work in their areas of operation during their regular meetings. They coordinate for material and equipment and synchronize their work with the other trades scheduled for the same area immediately before and after their own teams. This detailed construction preparation and tracking process is known as Assured Production Planning and Control, one of the five components that make up the Construction Project Production Management System (CP2Ms®) instituted at Olmsted in 2011. (Video by Brad Bell, Production Manager for URS-WG and Alberici Construction)

To the max! Maximum water release rate through the Green River Lake Dam
 
00:22
Green River Lake's Dam, Campbellsville, Kentucky -- Whoosh! Natural inflows into Green River Reservoir often exceed 25,000 cubic feet per second. The maximum allowable release rate through the dam is 8,300 cubic feet per second. Maximum releases are most often made during fall drawdown and only occasionally at other times. Therefore, even when the Corps is attempting to mimic nature’s rainfall-runoff response, we are putting out less than what would occur if the project had not been built. So, the video is of 26 tenths on the main gates with 8,000 cfs (cubic feet per second), which is close to the maximum allowable release rate through the dam at Green River Lake.
