Essex County, New Jersey<br style='line-height:2px'>Essex County Department of Parks

HAKS provided construction management services for Verona Lake Dam in Verona Park in Essex County, New Jersey. The 79-year-old masonry dam was classified by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection as a High Hazard Class 1 structure. The $740,000 rehabilitation project included repairs to leaks on the face of the dam and spillway, removal of all vegetative growth, repairs to cracked concrete and caps on the spillway, extension of the wing walls, repair of the flood control wall, stabilization of the banks around the spillway with a concrete armor block system, and replacement of an existing fence. 

We provided on-site inspection and construction monitoring; reviewed plans and specifications, contractor submittals, and design changes; analyzed and updated construction schedules; and prepared inspection reports.
