Fifteen Feet Down, 195 Feet to Go

Barnard Construction is going to take the Glines Canyon Dam down another four feet before the end of the month, then shift activities out of the river flow for the first 'fish window' (to protect the salmon in the lower five miles of the river). An article in the Peninsula Daily News pointed out yesterday that this means some 15 feet of the 210-foot Glines Canyon Dam will have been removed as of November 1.

9:55 AM, October 21, on the DamCam (Click for larger image.)

PDN is doing a great job of keeping us up-to-date. I wish they would ask Barnard Construction how many feet down they can go with the present notching procedure, i.e. when the working barge will ground on the rubble-filled silt upstream of the dam face. It's all just getting dropped in, for now...
