The Design Team and its contractors remain engaged in several activities on the canal as the warm summer weather continues.
Drilling for Bulkhead Study: As part of our continuing study of bulkheads in the canal, we will strategically begin drilling borings near and along existing bulkheads of the canal. Once drilled, we will prepare the borings for tests that will help us investigate and identify the structure and foundations of the existing bulkheads.
Groundwater Studies: We will collect data to better characterize how groundwater enters the canal. We will use this information in the development of future remedial design operations.
