Beginning as soon as the week of April 15, WSDOT will perform geotechnical investigations in the Union Bay Natural Area (UBNA). Crews will be taking soil samples and installing monitoring well equipment in and around the parking area to study soil and groundwater conditions. The information gathered helps us better understand the composition and characteristics of the ground in this area to prepare for future wetland mitigation work.
What can you expect?
- Monitoring well installation will begin as soon as April 15, 2013, and last up to one week. The wells will be in place through summer 2014.
- Work will occur on weekdays between 7 a.m.and 6 p.m.
- The primary impact will be temporarily reduced parking (up to four spaces per well) during drilling and monitoring well installation.
