Work continued removing Mill Pond dam and motivate its impounded sediments downstream.
The timber crib and concrete dams continued to be removed, with water levels dropping more than 20 feet. The channel behind the dam was no longer large enough accommodate a barge mounted excavator. An access road was constructed down to the dam, the excavator was moved to land, and demolition continued from atop native fill behind the dam (Photo 1). Jetting operations continued, flushing fine sediments from the mouth of the creek so that they could be carried further into the pond and prevent it from piling up at the delta. Water was released from Sullivan Lake Reservoir and redirected through the delta, using dikes and dug channels, to move sediment downstream (Photos 2, 3 & 4).
