16 deep water wells were completed last week; they will help keep groundwater away from the foundation site until the concrete can be successfully poured.
Ahead of the expected start of excavation in September, the equipment and materials for a Support of Excavation System are expected to arrive at the site this week. Two large drill rigs will drill down and place 75'-long piles around the perimeter of the site. Three weeks from now, they expect to have installed 126 of these steel piles.
In yet another deep drilling operation, 7 inclinometer stations will be installed around the site. These stations will monitor subsurface movements, and the stability of slopes and embankments for collapse. You will see these around the site as small manholes in the ground, but they are very important for safety purposes.
