We’re making incredible progress at John Martin Reservoir in Hasty, CO., dredging sediment from the reservoir, constructing and operating a dewatering facility, and meeting all state and federal standards to ensure pristine return water,” said Brennan.

Later on, their dive team will join the project to clear residual sediment from the face of the structure, install new bulkhead stops and seals.

Also, Brennan will assist dam personnel in setting, testing, and removing the bulkheads in the main concrete dam for quality assurance.

John Martin Reservoir is a reservoir on the Arkansas River in Bent County in southeastern Colorado.

Built and managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, it is used for flood control, irrigation, and recreation.
