RT Group, Inc. was retained by the Quidnick Reservoir Company to complete repairs to the downstream apron, footbridge, and outlet structure at the Flat River Reservoir Dam. The repairs were required as a result of the record flooding that occurred in March 2010. The repairs included re-building collapsed sections of the downstream masonry walls, repairing the damaged downstream apron using grouted riprap, replacing several footbridge footings, and repairing the low-level outlet structure.

RTG worked closely with the Town of Coventry to establish a realistic budget, complete the repair on time and on budget, and minimize the potential for overruns given a fixed repair budget was provided by FEMA.
