Golder Associates and their barge operator will complete a geotechnical investigation in and around the King’s Landing Wharf and Marina from August 8th to August 18th. The investigation will provide subsurface data needed to assist the City in determining the foundation type, and associated cost for both the rehabilitated wharf and the naturalized breakwater options. This information will help the Downtown Waterfront Advisory Subcommittee in their efforts to give recommendations to city council about the future rehabilitation of King’s Landing or the redevelopment of a Multi-Use Pier and Wave Break.
During in water borehole drilling, the contractor will implement several environmental protection procedures to minimize the impacts of discharge of drill water and cuttings to the lake. All activities will be controlled to minimize the entry of petroleum products, debris, rubble and other deleterious substances into the water. The barge operator and driller will organize their operations to minimize the disruption at the North Bay Marina, Waterfront, King’s Landing and Marathon Beach.
