Breach Repair Interior Dike

A large pile of sand has been growing everyday since Monday and is slowing taking the shape of a berm.  Our engineer estimates the interior dike should reach its full length and cross the breach channel sometime this weekend.  The interior dike will utilize a total of 8,000 cubic yards of sand.  The trucks are not hauling as much as we had hoped per load due to the terrain but the contractors are still making good progress.  Contractors are typically able to work 3 hours on either side of low tide depending on daylight availability.  Current estimates are for the project to take about 3 weeks until completion.
