2009 Project Update 3-23-09

CPE’s Nicole Sharp reports that progress is good at Davis Park with two dredges operating there since Friday March 20. Both the RN Weeks and the BE Lindholm moved to Davis Park late Friday evening to increase the rate of beach construction. As of this afternoon, approximately 50 linear feet of beach was left to complete the western segment of Davis Park.  Weeks expects to flip the pipeline tonight and begin to fill the eastern portion of the Davis Park. Double dredge operations will continue until mid-week and then one dredge will be move back to FI Pines.  Repairs to the mono-buoy needed to pump the sand ashore in FI Pines were completed today under mild sea conditions.
