Boone Dam Rehabilitation Project at a Glance
- Environmental Noise Control, Inc. designed & fabricated a 1,000-foot-long sound and light barrier for the Tennessee Valley Authority.
- ENC used STC-25 panels on our K-Rail Mounted Temporary Sound Wall to achieve results.
- ENC provided installation supervision for the project in East Tennessee.
The Tennessee Valley Authority contracted Environmental Noise Control, Inc. after a sinkhole, water seepage, and “internal erosion” conditions were discovered at the Boone Dam in East Tennessee.
The TVA was concerned with the sound & light pollution throughout the rehabilitation of the Boone Dam, as operations and pumping units were required to work twenty-four hours per day.
ENC designed & fabricated a nearly 1,000-foot-long wall to withstand 120-mile-per-hour wind loads for the dam.
The sound and light mitigation design for this project utilized ENC’s STC-25 acoustical barrier blankets on its K-Rail Mounted Temporary Sound Wall system with a height of 16 feet.
ENC provided installation supervision for the barrier, and it remains a successful, effective mitigation technique for the rehabilitation project as refurbishments are in process.
