The additional concrete rubble will be placed in the southeast quadrant of the site at a depth of 25-30 feet MLW, according to U.S. Coast Guard 5th District.
Marine Technologies is scheduled to deploy materials between November 27 and December 1, 2016, weather permitting. On deployment days a tug and 2-3 barges carrying a crane and concrete will be on site.
