River Intake/Outfall Systems

River intake and outfall systems have been a part of our business since the beginning. We have mechanical and structural field personnel with the experience to provide you with the highest quality systems to fit your needs.

In many cases these structures include jacketed pile-supported structures with screens and vertical lift pumps.  In other cases, we have driven temporary sheet pile coffer dams to run pipes out into the river to intake or release river waters. The typical river intake or outfall structure requires several months of field work and is installed at a lower elevation on the river so that the slack currents ensure proper alignment of the system.
