High Falls Culvert Awaits Report, Cuttalossa Culvert Replacement Going Well
August 6, 2015
Several repair options for the High Falls Creek culvert collapse in Upper Black Eddy were developed by the contractor. The task of evaluating these options was assigned to an outside engineering consultant. Borings and surveying needed to be done and have been completed. The consultant is in the final stages of developing a hydraulics report, which is expected to be done by mid-August. The results of the report will show the way forward. In terms of rewatering the Canal sooner rather than later, repair with long-term results is the much preferred outcome.
The replacement of the Cuttalossa Creek culvert is now going well and should be completed in September.
