However, for construction joints in dams, the work shall proceed from the high side to the low side so as to maintain an upward slope in the downstream direction, unless construction joints are otherwise shown on the drawings. Under no condition shall the slope be so steep as to cause the concrete to flow without The concrete shall be deposited as working, or to cause any segregation. nearly ‘as practicable in final position and shall not be piled up in large masses at any point and then pushed, shovelled, or vibrated into space for kJtlg distances. It shall be brought up evenly around all large openings, conduits, or embedded metal so as to minimize unequal pressure and avoid dispiacement.
