Major Tasks Underway:
- Completion of slide stabilization structures
- Release and direction of water from upstream reservoir to erode Mill Pond Delta sediments
- Demolition of log crib dam using crane and clamshell bucket
- Demolition of Mill Pond Dam using barge mounted excavator and ram
Work continued removing the Mill Pond dam and its impounded sediments downstream.
The timber crib and concrete dams continued to be removed, with water levels dropping more than 13 feet (Photo 1). Steel spikes were removed from timber recovered from the log crib dam so that it could be reused onsite (Photo 2). Limited jetting occurred around the pond of the newly exposed fine sediments. Water was released from Sullivan Lake Reservoir and redirected through the delta, using dikes and dug channels, to move sediment downstream (Photos 3 & 4). A second slide stabilization structure was completed.
