Update on Ash Shipping
As of Wednesday, November 17, 404 trains have shipped approximately 3.9 million tons of ash to the Arrowhead Landfill in Alabama. We are still on schedule to complete shipping by early December.
Skimmer Wall Reconstruction
The last of three caissons for reconstruction of the Skimmer Wall has been poured and six of eight concrete panels have been set. Installation of the beams is scheduled for completion on Friday. After this work is completed the Skimmer Wall will be operational. Caps are to be placed next week.
MACTEC Demobilization Plan Approved
The demobilization plan for MACTEC, the ash loading contractor, has been approved by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and has been posted to the administrative record. MACTEC will continue its planning for demobilization and will have fulfilled its contract by mid-December. The contractor will be off the site soon after.
Utility Installation Along Swan Pond Circle Bridge
Installation of utilities on Swan Pond Circle Bridge is to be complete by mid-December. Utilities on the approaches to the bridge are complete and the contractor is expected to begin utility installation on the bridge by November 29. During this installation one lane of the bridge may be closed intermittently.
New Haul Road Complete
The new haul road running under the Swan Pond Circle Bridge is complete. Workers will begin using the haul road to remove ash from the northern embayment next week.
Due to the Thanksgiving holiday and short work week, we will not have a weekly update next week but will provide one the following week. We extend our best wishes to members of the CAG for a wonderful Thanksgiving!
