The investigation will provide subsurface data needed to assist the City determine the foundation type and associated cost for both the rehabilitated wharf and the naturalized breakwater options.  This information will assist the Downtown Waterfront Advisory Subcommittee in their efforts to make recommendations to Council with respect to the future rehabilitation of King’s Landing Wharf or redevelopment of a Multi-use Pier and Wave Break.

During in water borehole drilling the contractor will implement several environmental protection procedures to minimize the impacts of discharge of drill water and cuttings to the lake. All activities will be controlled to minimize the entry of petroleum products, debris, rubble and other deleterious substances into the water.

The barge operator and driller will organize their operations to minimize the disruption to the existing use of the North Bay Marina, Waterfront, King’s Landing Wharf and Marathon Beach.
