Pipeline Project Working Saturday Jan. 11 on Maple Street

The SBSA pipeline project will be working this Saturday, January 11, and perhaps the following Saturday, for necessary pilot tubing work at Jacking Shaft 1 on Maple Street at the Docktown entrance. This is because each pilot tube bore that starts has a battery operated laser at the head.   The battery operated head only lasts for 48 hours, so if they do not complete a pilot tube on Friday, then the laser at the head will be out of batteries when they commence pilot tubing on Monday.  Therefore, they need to work on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. to finalize the pilot tube with a functioning laser.


Thank you for your understanding.
