Reconstruction Summary Report Onondaga Lake Through 2013

This construction summary report documents dredging and capping production for the Onondaga Lake remediation project through 2013, and summarizes enhancements that have been and/or will be implemented to further improve productivity, quality, and safety. Through 2013, approximately 1,210,000 cubic yards (cy) of sediment have been dredged, exceeding the original planned production (935,000 cy). It is now estimated that dredging can reasonably be completed by the end of the 2014 construction season. The cumulative cap material volume placed by the end of 2013 is approximately 550,000 cy, which is slightly less than design projections. However, capping operations in 2013 were consistent with design volumes and the capping is still projected to be completed within five years as originally planned.
