River Intake Construction Update

Concrete being poured around the first level wall forms

This week at the river intake pump station, the first level of walls were placed by pouring concrete between the wall forms. Over the next few days the concrete will set in place.

Next week, the wall forms will be removed from the bottom layer and reinstalled above the newly poured concrete. This is to prepare for installing the next wall level. Reinforced bar will also be added in the bottom of the cofferdam. This work will continue over the next month. Once the wall forms are in place, a large concrete pour will occur. This is scheduled for early January.

Generally, during the next three weeks, work hours will be 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, with no Saturday work expected. No work will occur on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day or New Years Day.

We wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season.
