As the spring weather continues, the Design Team and its contractors remain engaged in several activities on the canal.
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.
- Groundwater Discharge Rates: Based on April’s results, we will install seepage meters in the Canal to measure the flow of water between the sediments beneath its floor and the surface water. The seepage meters will measure and record the water flow in two-day periods to provide information from multiple cycles of the tide.
