The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District is set to resume work in Critical Area 1 here at Wolf Creek Dam. Critical Area 1 is the area where the earthen embankment wraps around the end of the concrete section of the dam. Vertical holes will be drilled to define the edges of the cave and core trench along the alignment of the proposed concrete barrier wall. After testing, the holes will be gravity backfilled with grout to enable safe installation of the barrier wall. The subcontractor is mobilizing equipment today into Critical Area 1 and should commence drilling tomorrow. As always, public safety is the top priority and the Corps of Engineers will be monitoring this and all other construction activities closely.
