Project Update 3-12-09

Nicole Sharp of CP&E reports: Pumping continues in Fire Island Pines to complete the western portion of the segment.  Weeks expects to be finished pumping the lower portion of the western segment by Friday night.  Once the western portion of FI Pines is finished, the pipe will be flipped to complete the remaining eastern portion of FI Pines.

Weeks Marine also expects to place the submerged pipeline at Davis Park tomorrow (Friday).  Once the subline is placed, pumping will commence in Davis Park.

Lastly, Weeks did a final sweep of Western Fire Island today and removed debris from the project area. Weeks will begin to remove the debris from FI Pines tomorrow and then the remaining reaches once dredging has started. We will inspect the work next time we pass through the reach.
