Based on daily reports, the following metrics have been calculated:
LF (Linear Feet) = 7,740 (79.8% of 9,700–A)
CY (Cubic Yards) = 305,001 (84.2% of 362,1632-B)
- A – Rigid has moved back north to begin to collect the additional material as described below.
- B – Total volume will be adjusted when quantity calculations are completed.
Daily quantity volumes are still below what we’ve seen prior to the beginning of December.
Calculations are ongoing regarding quantifying the expected additional material that infiltrated into the mouth of the river. There are required discussions to understand and agree to the quantities.
Rigid took an approved break over a few days for the holidays. They demobilized on 12/22 and returned back to site on 12/27.
Since the return from the break, the waves have been too rough to restart dredging, but a number of maintenance items have been taken care of regarding their equipment.
