The LID 19 operator and crew continue to work diligently to deploy the 12 additional pumps at the Steep Bank Creek pump station. As of 6 pm today, 5 of the 12 pumps were fully deployed and operational (see pics below). The crew will continue to work overnight to deploy the remaining 7 pumps, with the expectation that they will become fully operational during that time.
The existing pumps at the pump station continue to operate at full capacity without any issue.
As a matter of safety, Thompson Ferry Road has been closed for public traffic. In addition, as a reminder, the pump station site is restricted to LID personnel — no public access is allowed.
As we receive more information, we will be sure to update you.
