Dams, Reservoirs, Watersheds, Canals, and Aqueducts

 

Over the last several decades, Towill has provided surveying, mapping, and geospatial solutions for a critical component to today’s water infrastructure system–dams. Specific to dam structures, Towill’s services have been utilized on dam foundations, crest elevations, tunnels and pipelines, and ancillary dam features, such as roadways, buildings, spillways, and boat ramps. Our work has included not just dams, but a multitude of other water storage and transmission facilities throughout California including reservoirs, watersheds, canals, aqueducts, intake and outlet structures, and other facilities such as fish screens.
