There will be sixteen (16) 10" x 40' piles associated with the proposed work. All materials utilized for improvements will be constructed of non-polluting materials.
All associated piles will be jetted irtto the bottom and air hammered to finish grade with a noise dampener. Appropriate turbidity control measures, such as silt curtains or equivalent, shall be utilized to reduce the impact from turbidity during the pile driving activity. There is no intent on supplying water or electricity to the proposed slips. Currently the water depths are sufficient and dredging is not needed. The finger piers and Jet Ski floats will be removed seasonally and stored in an upland area onsite.
