Abstract: The requirement that synchronous bypass valves be provided on most hydroplants and the high cost of suitable valves have created a demand for rebuilt valves. Recently, the Bureau of Reclamation rebuilt four valves. One valve is now the synchronous bypass valve at Monticello Dam Hydroplant, and the others are river outlet valves. This paper has been written to provide hydroplant planners and designers with the technical and cost information obtained in the rebuilding program of four valves.
