I don’t think very many people thought they would meet the deadline As Kiewit approaches the November 1st deadline for phase one, laborers continue work on the main spillway to ensure it can handle flows of 100,000 cubic feet per second this winter.

Work continues at the emergency spillway to construct an underground secant pile or cut off wall to prevent uphill erosion.

Crews will continue to finish the RCC walls and place a layer of enriched RCC over the surface of the center chute.
