  • Sika admixtures are playing a key role in repairing the Oroville Dam Spillway back to its original design capacity.

What concrete wasn’t washed away on the lower part of the main part of the spillway is being removed to allow for construction of a replacement.  #Concrete #OrovilleDam #Oroville #SuccesswithSika #SikaEveryDay #Construction
