Watch Technologies is replacing 12 gates for the American Dam on the Rio Grande River and the American Canal, which divert flow to the Rio Grande Basin. The 12 gates weigh on average 10,000 pound each. 10 of the gates are 20′ wide and 7′ tall, and two gates are 20′ wide and 11′ tall. Watch Technologies will be removing the old gates, and manufacturing and installing new gates. This is a $1.5 million project funded by the U.S. Section of the International Boundary and Water Commission, a federal government agency that applies the boundary and water treaties of the United States and Mexico and settles differences that may arise in their application.
