The historic wheel on the Bale Grist Mill, Napa County, is in need of reconstruction because the steel retaining bands around the perimeter of the wheel, along with the fasteners, did not properly hold the bands in place. Work includes removal/installation of steel retaining bands, wood rot correction, repair of the Bull Gear and installation of a new tail end of the flume. A broken wooden spoke will also be replaced. This project protects a cultural resource while enhancing interpretive opportunities.
