That intake structure has shown increased seepage in and around the structure with the rate of seepage increasing with time. Department staff will use hand tools and manual labor to dewater the two areas needing repair and will then pour a small concrete cap over the leaks. Concrete will be mixed on site using a small portable mixer.
