John Councilman prepares equipment to be used during nighttime construction
John Councilman, contractor for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District, oversees final assembly of a custom-built excavator Aug. 28, 2012, for levee work underway along the American River in Sacramento, Calif. Crews are preparing to install a nearly 900-foot seepage cutoff wall, which is partly located under low-overhanging, high power lines. To accommodate the large levee equipment and minimize the impact to local residents, the power lines will be de-energized for the nighttime-only work scheduled from September 10-15. The work is part of a joint flood-risk reduction effort between the Corps, the state of California’s Central Valley Flood Protection Board and Sacramento Area Flood Control District.
