The 1,500 gallon per minute pump does the same job at the downstream weir. Any water that flows backward through the downstream cofferdam into the work area is pumped into a side channel. Plastic liners, sandbags and rock are used to isolate the water from the work area. In this photo you can see the pump discharging water into the diversionary channel.
