Pictures of construction at Site 42 - 11/14/1999
The discharge was diverted temporarily....
.....through this channel with a culvert installed...
....into Carbon Run, which cleared up as construction proceeded and water was diverted back into its original flow path.
A closeup of Carbon Run upstream of the diversion
The diversion allowed iron oxides to dry before they were hauled out to allow for pond construction. This view looks east.
This view, looking west, again shows the ditch with iron oxides drying. The discharge was diverted to the left. The weir constructed by SCRA volunteers was high and drying.
