N. Meck Pipeline Update
As posted on 8/17, clearing of the corridor for sewer pipe construction is complete. A 30 - 40 ft swath has been cut through the forest, crossing the trail at two adjacent locations. Massive tree gnawing machinery appears to have chewed everything in sight, leaving behind mulch that approaches 2 ft thick in areas.

A pathway through the mulch has been cleared at both locations and we feel the trail is race ready for September 1st. We may need to bring in some crush and run gravel if the predicted upcoming rains puddle in the troughs. We will keep you informed of the trail condition, and may ask for a push next Monday evening (8/30) if we need to haul in some gravel.

We have received word that actual construction of the pipeline will start in October. We are hopeful of repairing the trail in these areas in rapid fashion.

Please keep in mind that safety in these areas is paramount.
