  • A carbon trailer used for the onsite water treatment system was removed from the Site on Tuesday via a truck with trailer hitch.
  • The field team conducted equipment maintenance and cleaning on Monday and Tuesday near the northwest corner, as some large equipment must be demobilized during this time.
  • A forklift to unload the 16-foot barrier fence panels arrived onsite on Tuesday.
