The Past Week

  • Construction continued at the lower end of Reach 1. Crew 1 completed overflow channel grading and added pool habitat in several locations. Crew 1 also started bench and point bar grading further upstream. Logs, rootwads, and boulders were delivered to the staging area.

  • Civil Arts will complete construction staking at Reach 7 prior to work starting.

  • Final construction walk throughs will continue. They are being scheduled as close as possible to the start of construction in each reach to keep everything fresh in mind. Thanks again for your responsiveness and flexibility as I reach out to schedule these.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
