Taum Sauk Pumped Storage Largest Rolled Concrete Structure in North America

The Taum Sauk Pumped Storage Plant which just opened is North America’s largest roller compacted concrete placement to date. Concrete products notes:

A new upper-reservoir portion, crest and 3.5-ft. parapet wall combine for the RCC record, easily besting PCA-noted stalwarts such as Utah’s Upper Stillwater Dam (1987, 1.47 million yd.), California’s Olivenhain Dam (2002, 1.44 million yd.), and South Carolina’s Saluda Dam (2005, 1.3 million yd.)…Fred Weber Inc. and Colorado heavy/civil specialist ASI Constructors Inc., Ozark Constructors recycled crushed concrete from the old structure in the new RCC mixes.

We have no idea what any of that means but thought we would pass it along. After all it’s not often we quote concreteproducts.com on this site. The Rolled Concrete page on wikipedia does show a picture of Taum Sauk.
