# 9 | Installation in a precast concrete culvert
Attachment points at both ends and reinforcement of ground roughness
Installation in a frame is more difficult because you cannot operate from the bank of the stream.
The laying area must be prepared before deploying the cofferdam.
The deviation can be done by pipeline under the dam (See Case # 1) or by a spillway placed on the edge of the ridge (See Video).
The stages of the Maneuver
Clean the laying surface
Prepare 3 anchor points on each wall
Lay logs of gravel on the ground to increase the friction forces
Route the flexible cofferdam
Unroll the cofferdam
Unfold the canvas. Please note that the leading edge must always be kept out of the water!
Hang the 4 angles of the flexible cofferdam on the walls
Position the canvas correctly between the two walls and over the sandbags
Place the leading edge at the bottom of the water. Coordinated action!
Check that the canvas goes correctly, without tension, on each side to the wall.
Ballast the leading edge and angles
Ridge edge: place the clamps in the corners to avoid creases and position the flotation accessories
Fixing the leading edge against the walls
Removal | Wearing a life jacket compulsory!
Remove all the fasteners on one side.
Raise the leading edge to run water under the cofferdam.
The cofferdam begins to slide under the upstream thrust.
When the flow is considerably reduced, all fasteners are removed on the opposite side.
