Superior Seawalls are scheduled to be here to meet with Jim Miller next Friday May 19th for discussion on Site 7 and Site 8. The dredging should resume after 7/4/17.
Jim Miller reported that Area 9 has been completed as of Dec 8,2016. Stated that 5,000 cubic yards of sediment has been removed from the JL side. On Lake James side only around Goat Island was dredged. Site 1 is due to start this August. Dredging will be 35 - 40 ft wide and will stop 300 ft out from dam. Site 8 is due to start after Labor Day estimating 10 days to do mechanically with approx 6,000 cubic yards removal along with some reeds. This is not part of the grant, it is privately paid by home owners. Currently Site 7 has their permit submitted to the Army Corp.
Jim also reported that John Boyd (with dredging) has contacted Tim Knoblauch asking for location where tree stumps are so they can be marked. Do not remove those that have already been placed.
