The Longhorn Dam Restoration Project - The dam is important to the Austin downtown area. The dam was engineered and built in 1949 by Brown & Root. Here Armor is restoring the worn out gates to their original condition. Due to the age of the dam some parts had to fabricated to Armors demanding specs. The last picture above shows the wheel assembly that Armor designed and fabricated. Maintaining the level of Town Lake keeps downtown Austin from flooding.
