While none of the pond dams built by us in South Carolina over the last 30 years failed during the 1000-year, catastrophic flood of early October 2015, 51 dams in the state did breach during the event. The “high hazard” (as classed by SC DHEC) dam at Culler Pond, near North, SC, was one of the 51 that failed, and we were contracted to repair it by its owners. The engineering and permitting process took about a year, and we repaired it in late 2016. A tremendous amount of water flows through Salem Creek into Culler Pond and then on to the North Edisto River. When we completed installing the new aluminum spillway system and making other improvements, it was amazing at how quickly the pond regained full-pool. This dam was one of the first 6 of the 51 to be repaired.
