With clocks going back last weekend, I had to resort to Saturday morning site visits. Keeping my fingers crossed that Inert weren't working on Saturdays. Otherwise I'd have to adjourn my visit to Sunday.
Rainfall has finally abated. The odd short, sharp shower is all that has passed this last week. Despite this, ground conditions were soft. Interestingly, ground conditions over the latest in/upfill was very firm.
Inert have ploughed on with the in/up fill of Cormorant lake (north). The area of lake bed, which the bulldozer had ventured upon last week, has largely been both in and up filled.
I think I have to revise my optimistic estimates of the length of time to complete work on this lake. I feel a good four weeks will be good going. The speed of restoration depends on how much stuff can be obtained and shipped in. Plus the hiring of sufficient numbers of trucks.
However, once Cormorant lake (north) is filled, there is still the matter of completing the infill of Cormorant lake (south), plus the outstanding work of digging out the new Manor Lake (south), and the large pond that should occupy a position just south of Cormorant lake (north); and then on to tree planting and final landscaping e.g. the new Finch ponds.
