JOB REPORTS: Agitors deliver Roller Compacted and Conventional Concrete (RCC and CVC) to Taum Sauk Pumped Storage
When the Taum Sauk Upper Reservoir Dam failed in 2005, the decision was made to replace
the complete reservoir. Over 22 months, 2.8 million cubic yards of RCC and .3 million cubic
yards of CVC were placed by Ozark Constructors, a venture partnership between Fred Weber
and ASI Constructors. The reservoir is located in Lesterville, Missouri, USA in the St. Francois
mountain region of the Ozark Mountains, and reopened in 2010, with a storage capacity of over
1 billion gallons of water.
Maxon Agitors were used on the project to haul and place RCC, CVC and grout enriched RCC
for all phases of construction. The unique design of the Agitor offers easy and effi cient loading
from any concrete plant, or conveyor. The hoisting body allows for fast discharge, up to 12yd3
(9m3) in less than 30 seconds, and the patented chutes provide direct placement of RCC/CVC
to exacting locations.
