The last spillway concrete pour occurred last week leaving only 5 remaining small pours on the Blue Lake dam until it’s completed. Alaska’s largest crane that has assisted in the building of the dam expansion will be disassembled starting in late October.
Testing is occurring throughout the project site including on two of the three turbine generators at the Blue Lake powerhouse and at the water treatment plant which means that Blue Lake water should be integrated into the drinking water within the next two weeks.
Sitka will continue to get drinking water from the Indian River filtration plant until the end of the generation outage at which time the town will be weaned back on to Blue Lake water.
IT IS STILL VERY IMPORTANT TO CONSERVE BOTH ELECTRICITY AND WATER until October 18!
