Construction Update- Week of August 14, 2017

  • Last week, (week of August 7) the contractor had to deal with high water levels in Peyton Slough causing water to leak into pond C.
  • The main work items last week involved dewatering pond C and re-drying the soils there.
  • The contractor also continued to dry/moisture condition soils in ponds D and E.
  • This week (Week of August 14) the contractor plans to continue drying/moisture conditioning the soils in ponds D and E and will hopefully be doing some grading/compaction for the new ponds.
  • This week the contractor will continue to dewater pond C and may be able to start work on the pond C levee if suitable import material is located to cap the levee.
