Beach Joint County Ditch Project Update

Construction is getting closer to completion on the Beach Ditch.  The contractor has completed all of the one-sided clearing and grubbing on the Flat Branch.  All of the excavation on the Flat Branch has been excavated with approximately 2/3’s of the spoil leveled.  Log Jam removal on the Flat Branch, Lower End and the Woodruff Branch are all completed.  The contractor has some more rock to install and seeding to complete once weather allows.
