Located in south-central Pennsylvania in Hanover, 54 miles northwest of Baltimore, Maryland, and 5 miles north of the Mason-Dixon line, the Sheppard-Myers Dam was originally constructed in 1932. This dam impounds water for use in Hanover, Pennsylvania, a town of just over 16,000 inhabitants, and the immediate region. With a capacity of 217,400,000 gallons, the dam’s reservoir covers an area of 46.5 acres; the surrounding watershed area was reforested with a total of 1,500,000 trees.
Once added to concrete, the proprietary chemicals in PENETRON ADMIX SB react in a catalytic reaction to generate a non-soluble crystalline formation throughout the pores and capillary tracts of the concrete. These crystals permanently self-heal and seal micro-cracks, pores, and capillaries against the penetration of water (or liquids) from any direction – making the concrete impermeable.
