Sand mound excavation preps...

February 1, 2006

I have been in contact with both people from the department of environment (NBDOE) and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) this week.  I am in the process of applying for the proper permits that would allow us to go uncover the sand mound at the bottom of the river this summer.  I have received today the form I need to get the ball rolling on my application process.  I have also talked to the guys from East Dive last week and discussed with them of my plans for the summer.  I will in the weeks to come fill out various application permits and keep in touch with D.F.O. , N.B.D.O.E. and East Dive. 

Right now my plans are:


-1 Acquire the environmental permits (normally valid from June to September)


-2 Raise the money needed to hire professional divers and equipment to do this work.  I am not crazy about this idea because everything that has been done to date has cost nothing.


-3 Get divers to uncover the mound sometime this summer.


Let’s see what happens...
