Western Canyon Regional Water Supply Project-Raw Water Intake & Pump Station

Austin, Texas

Stiver Engineering was retained to provide a contractor in Austin, Texas with a caisson design for the proposed Canyon Lake intake structure. The structure was designed to be 20 feet in diameter and 135 feet deep, and it was constructed by blasting through 135 feet of limestone.  

Stiver Engineering provided structural design by designing for the wall and bottom slab of the caisson, which consisted of rock bolts, wire mesh, and shotcrete. We also provided a reinforced concrete design for the bottom slab.
