Document Description
1) Excavation of a footing for a concrete curb at the base of an existing seawall protecting the lakeside property from degradation due to significant wave action from the reservoir. The footing will be excavated into the existing exposed bedrock of the lakebed at the base of the seawall during seasonal low water levels. All rock debris from the excavation will be placed into materials bags and transported by mini excavator to a floating barge anchored adjacent to the project site. The rock debris will then be transported to a marina and offloaded to be sent to an off-site disposal facility. 2) Temporary installation of concrete forms for the poured curb. The overall size of the curb at the base of the seawall will range from eighteen (18) inches wide by eighteen (18) inches high to eighteen (18) inches wide by sixty (60) inches in height. 3) Pouring of the concrete curb. All concrete will be pumped by hose from a pumping truck parked on the street in front of the residence. All cleanout of the pumping truck and cement delivery trucks will be contained in washout basins delivered to the site. 4) A mini excavator will be delivered to the site via a floating barge and will be used only on that portion of the project area consisting of exposed bedrock. All other construction related vehicles will be parked on a residential street, landward of the project site. Construction of the concrete forms for the curbing will be done using hand tools.
