Here is an update on the Great Northern Dam Project from Darryl Haba, the project supervisor:
"Wanted to let you know that we were able to get all trees down before March 1st as we had indicated to the Neighborhood in the meetings we previously held to avoid the bird nesting. This week until about the end of next week we will be using a chipper to mulch all tree limbs and clearing the site of all debris.
"The neighboring residents have been respectful of our work site and we in turn are focusing on maintaining a neat work site.
"We were able to save four trees that were scheduled for removal, one of which bordered a residents property. The others are on the eastern side of the property and we were pleased we could leave them in place as they were some nice oak trees.
"I would say that within another two weeks, people will see a lot more excavation taking place as we start to lay-out the new spillway area and start cutting in the new maintenance road.
"I wanted to see if you were interested in looking at the color chart of the concrete when we get these submittals from the contractor so that you have the opportunity to see that we are adding the color the Neighborhood requested. Thanks again and let me know if you hear of any concerns as we will do our best to accommodate people when we can.
