River Intake Construction Update

Crews try to stay warm while installing rebar for the RIPS walls in cold weather

The river intake pump station walls are continuing to rise! Over the last month, work has focused on forming the structural interior pump walls, installing reinforced bar to support the walls and setting the forms for the next level of exterior walls.

Starting mid next week, a large concrete pour will occur around the exterior wall forms and interior struts, to support the walls. This should take about three days to complete, weather permitting. This pour will bring the elevation of the exterior walls to 45 feet!

Neighbors can expect some noise and an increase in truck traffic during the concrete pour, as 12-15 concrete trucks come and go. Generally, during the next three weeks, work hours will be 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Once the concrete is poured for the walls and struts, crews will begin working on forming the pump station floor decks.

We apologize for the inconvenience construction may cause and thank you for your patience as work progresses.
