Comprehensive WInter weather work plans
Michigan winter weather conditions impaired but did not stop construction activities at the dams. Crews on the sites follow a comprehensive safety plan that ensures work is completed safely and with reasonable productivity during winter weather. February’s progress update is included in this report.
Engineering teams continue working with the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy and U.S. Fish and Wildlife to acquire and modify permit applications for the Edenville final phase. All are working hard to get permits in place for startup in April. The only remaining permit is to address the Snuffbox Mussel which we expect in the fall. It is required to fill Wixom Lake. We expect all of Edenville will be contracted by the end of February.
The FLTF-approved assessment roll was posted on Tuesday. As people look at their published Capital Assessment, some are asking questions about paying off the principal. We included answers in the FAQ section of the news flash. We have been engaged with the State of Michigan Treasury as we draw down from the state grant to cover work and are keeping them aware of our overall financing plans and project timing.
We have great teams dedicated to the restoration construction project tracks and others handling the financing and assessment. I appreciate the team that we have in place. Please visit our Who We Are page and see the team of experts engaged.
