High probability operations under Tent 2 are nearly complete. This week the crews began the final surface scraping of the areas fully excavated to saprolite under Tent 2. The resulting soil and bedrock were then loaded into drums and transported to the Federal Property.
There were no detections of chemical agents or industrial compounds found in the soil, rubble or in the air monitors this week. No munition debris was recovered this week. Also, no AUES-related items or discolored soil were found.
We anticipate completing the high probability operations under Tent 2 over the next week or two, depending on weather. Per our approved work plans, a USACE Geologist will conduct a final assessment of the excavated areas to confirm that the clean-up efforts under Tent 2 have been completed.
We have implemented our hurricane plan for this coming weekend, which includes ensuring adequate erosion control for the site and securing all equipment at the site. Our team will be actively monitoring all weather conditions throughout the weekend and into early next week. Pending weather conditions, we will resume normal operating hours, which are from 8 am to 4 pm, on Monday, October 5th.
Safety continues to be our number one priority at the site. Throughout every phase of the project, all necessary precautions are taken to ensure the safety of the site workers, the residents of the community, and those driving by. If there is a safety concern that you wish to contact us about after office hours, know that we still maintain our Spring Valley Project Emergency Hotline: (888)393-0059.
Also, we would like to remind everyone that we will have our Shelter-in-Place system monthly test this Wednesday, October 7th at 4:05 pm.
