Philip Secrist during a ceremony held in Mosul, Iraq on June 14, 2019. Reilly served as a project engineer for the $357K Adit Joint Repair Project inside the dam’s grouting gallery and saw it through from beginning to successful completion. The project stayed on or ahead of schedule and had zero safety incidents ensuring delivery for the Iraqi Ministry of Water Resources and the structural integrity of the dam grouting gallery well beyond MDTF’s presence on site. USACE arrived at Mosul Dam in September 2016 to serve as “the Engineer” providing construction management, quality assurance, engineering and technical oversight and project management services in connection with a contract between Iraq and an Italian company for maintenance grouting and rehabilitation of the bottom outlet of the Mosul Dam.
