<< Dams

Sutterby Construction Services designs and constructs all dam types including hydro power generation dams. We also work closely with our engineers, including the New York State Dam Safety Engineers to provide dam structures that are environmentally friendly and visually beautiful. These improvements are designed to greatly enhance access and your view of the waterfront.

Our design-build teams focus on permitting, project budget, materials of construction, constructability, geotechnical evaluation, construction quality, safety and coordination.

<<Dam Decommissioning Services


     New York State dam safety regulations are being enforced by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and other regulatory agencies. Owners of dams are required to operate and maintain their dams in accordance with these safety regulations. The costs to repair or to rebuild these structures combined with yearly operation and maintenance costs may no longer justify the benefits of the dam. As a result, some dam owners are considering the partial or complete removal of their dam.
     The engineering, permitting and construction process required to properly remove the dam is defined as dam decommissioning. Sutterby Construction Services, Inc. and our design teammates provide design, permitting and construction services for dam decommissioning projects. We have a very talented group of "out-of-the-box" thinkers who creatively determine cost effective, environmentally sensitive solutions for your dam decommissioning project. We take pride in our reputation as an excellent design, permitting and marine construction service provider by keeping our approach as simple and as cost effective as possible while working as a teammate with the Owner and the regulatory agencies.
