Posted on October 12th, 2010

Beginning this week, residents of the Bass Lake area will begin to see increased activity of construction personnel and arrival of construction related equipment near the Crane Valley Dam area on PG&E property. This mobilization of personnel and equipment is in preparation for the start of the first phase of the Crane Valley Dam Retrofit Project set to begin on Tuesday, October 19, 2010.

Activities onsite this week starting Monday, October 11, 2010 and continuing through Friday, October 15, 2010, include soil sampling crews working on the project site performing investigative analysis important for the project construction efforts. In addition, equipment and construction personnel will begin to mobilize on site to avoid creating traffic congestion the week of October 18, 2010.

As indicated, construction is set to begin on Tuesday, October, 19, 2010. The first phase of construction will consist of timber harvesting, dam site clearing and site preparation for the new Wishon Quarry located on USFS land approximately 2,000 feet southeast of the dam off of Road 222.
