Tailrace Portal

Owner: Starrett Tool Co.
Location: Athol, MA

Tailrace Portal


The arch design for this project was borrowed from the Romans and applied to a tailrace portal, allowing “spent” water to exit from the tailpit back into the river. Impossible access combined with very high imposed loading to create one of the toughest set of project conditions we have ever faced. By helping to set up a cooperative dialog amongst the various project participants, we were able to make significant contributions to this very elegant and effective solution.
