Starting this week, the soil mixing equipment for installation of the cut-off wall is being delivered and assembled at Liebs Island and North Shore.

Activity related to the installation of the Embankment Stability Berm (ESB) continues from the main access areas of Liebs Island and North Shore. The ESB has progressed well past Mud Island and the Amil Gate Spillway.
