The drilling phase of the Carlsbad Brine Well remediation project began the last week of September 2019.

The traffic modifications to the "South Y" are fully implemented and have proven functional and safe.  Eight grouting wells have been completed to date (Dec 3rd) with a total of 16 wells planned.  Two more wells are anticipated to be completed by Dec 9th.  During advancement of one of the grouting wells we encountered a pressurized void above the cavern containing a significant amount of water, but the zone was successfully isolated

Next Steps: Continue installation of grouting wells. The start of grout injection into the cavern is presently scheduled to begin December 9th.
