Cap’n Sams Cut – Today 6/10/2015

R.E. Goodson was on the jobsite at low tide early this morning to remove the dump truck and bulldozer that were submerged in the inlet.  Using additional bulldozers, dump trucks and cables, the dump truck was removed at about 7:30am and the bulldozer at approximately 9:15am.  Although the fuel had been drained from both vehicles when they became stuck in the inlet, absorbent barriers were positioned around the equipment in the event any fuel was released from the submerged vehicles during removal.  Representatives of the Coast Guard, OCRM and SCDHEC were onsite for the entire process and indicated the site was clean and the activity posed no environmental threat.
The stockpiling of sand continues on both sides of the inlet.  This will continue until sufficient quantities have been accumulated and the closure can be completed.  Our engineering firm is optimistic that it can take place later this week depending on weather and tide cycles.
