Cormorant lake c'est mort. Vive la Cormorant lake. Part 5. Pump station mound recedes, but gets flat top. 11th July 2022
What Inert have done, are doing to pump station mound is rather curious. It continues to shrink in size, as it is used to infill and upfill Cormorant lake (south). What I do not really understand is what Inert have done to it.
At one point, a couple of weeks back, I wrote that Inert were using spoil from this mound to infill 'pump station pond'. Only I discovered they haven't. Instead they have built a tall, imposing bank that looks like a rampart.
They have also given the mound a flat top. However, this flat top appears far higher than the wetlands to the north of the mound. I'm afraid I didn't really check out what the height of this flat top was like in relation to the south footpath or the pump station. It might be that it is the same level as the south footpath. I shall ascertain next time I am on the site.
I would expect the bulk of pump station mound to have disappeared by the end of this week, if progress continues at the pace it has so far.
