Rockfill dam settlement monitoring

Located in northern Quebec, the Romaine-2 dam is a 112 m high asphalt core rockfill structure [1]. As part of a $6.5 billion hydroelectric complex with four hydro-generating stations, construction of the Romaine-2 development began in 2009 [2].

A number of ShapeArrays are installed to monitor settle­ment in the upstream and downstream rockfill shoulders.

Overall construction on the Romaine Complex project is scheduled for 2020.
