As of Friday (10/13/17)

LGS continues to work areas south of Work Package # 4 (Shoe Creek and un-named canals south of Lovett Road) and Work Package # 7

  • The work crews spent the week working in areas immediately adjacent to work packages # 4 and 6 where debris was observed, but was not known since it is located in canals that were not inspected during the pre-work walking assessments. The majority of which was located on or near Shoe Creek south of work package # 4. Although zero known sites were removed, significant tonnage was recorded.

- 0 of the known sites were removed this week.

- Debris is also being encountered between sites.

- 131 of the 219 known sites (total for all work packages) have been removed.

- 88 remaining known sites

- 603 Tons of debris have been removed to date

- 78,160 linear feet of channels have been cleaned to date.

Below are some before and after photos from the work completed this week:
