Tempe Town Lake

Project Description

The City of Tempe has replaced the inflatable rubber dam system at the west end of Tempe Town Lake with a new, hydraulically-operated steel gate dam. The system will be, when complete, the country’s largest hydraulically-operated steel gate dam system. The new dam will be a reliable and cost-effective solution that is expected to last for decades. ATM provided the aerial mapping on this project once the lake was completely drained with 40 scale mapping, one foot topographic information and digital color orthophotography.
