The construction of Ulu Tutong Dam, London

Watch this event

Ulu Tutong Dam is located in the remote jungle of Negara Brunei Darussalam. The dam forms a reservoir of some 80MCM of raw water which acts as a strategic reserve to regulate downstream river levels during times of low flow. The project includes the construction of a 24km access road, 440m long, 42m high embankment dam. The appurtenant works includes a 300m long diversion tunnel, 42m high draw-off tower, 40m wide fixed Ogee weir with a discharge capacity of 850m3/s.

This presentation discusses construction of the dam, appurtenant works, full depth central Plastic Concrete Cut-off wall, and the management of a large relic slip beneath the dam foundation.

This meeting will also be streamed live online. For more details on how to view this meeting, including at one of our Regional Hubs in Glasgow, Warrington or Cardiff click here or please visit the meetings page on the BDS website: www.britishdams.org
