Township Engineer Kim Craft reports that construction of the new Edgemont Pond wall is progressing ahead of schedule with about 75% of the wall installed. Randy Staley, project manager for GMP Contracting, LLC, anticipates completion of the wall by June 28, “provided the block manufacturer can keep up with us.”
“We have had few very wet weeks that have slowed production down. Hopefully the weather will cooperate for the next few weeks and the project can be wrapped up,” said Staley.
Dredging work will be completed next week, followed by testing of the dredged materials. Once testing is completed, a receiving facility will be selected and dredged material will begin to be removed from the park by mid-July.
