By Qreg Bowen  Ttie Herald Zeitung  Contractors will continue using a pre-drilling technir|U(p devised in the field to speed the ton-stru( tion of the "deep wall" fouridation for ('ornal County's Krueger Canyon Dam projet t  Work on th(* deep wall had b(*en slowt'd by the toughness of the native lirni'stone, causing the $ I h. { million [)roje( t to fall behind st hedule and raising concerns about meeting a c ruci.il luly 2012 (leadline, after whi( h $12 million in f(‘d-eral grant tunds could possitily be torfeited.  Att('r a meeting with clam contractors on Wednesday, (bounty Fngi-neer Tom Hornseth said repr('sentatives ot the ^^arv la nd-liead(|ua rtered Hayw.ird B.iker Cieotf'c h-ni(al Construction are confident pr(>drilling will sp(‘C'd up the ability of their patent(‘d, propri(‘tar\' treiK hing mat linc* to cut through th(' lirnc'stoiKv  Havward Baker's trenc her, whic h not only digs the tr(*nch tor the dt'(‘p wall but simult.ine-ousi\ mixes (on( rc*f(' with ex( avated mat('ri.ils irom  the dam site to form thf’ wall, had been moving so slowly since work began in May that various fixes were attem()t(>d, including changing tec»th configurations on the trencher.  Finally, the idea of ()re-drilling holes in the rock in advanc e of th(' treiK h('r was trit'd.  "Thi'y told us today they've done t'nough pre-drilling and are ex[)(‘ri-enced enough now to get us a n('w sc h(‘dule with a high level ot corvti-dence," said Hornseth.  " lhat was good news"  ()rigin.)l plans werc’ that Hayward would finish the deep w.ill by Aug. 7, .ind the dam contractor who will be hired to build the actual dam would gc't started on Aug. 8.

He said grant rc'cjuiri's  not total completion, but "substantial c onifiletion" by the deadline, whic h mt'ans it must be able to fun( tion as designed dur ing a lOO-year-flood ('vent.  In 2009, the work on the project was stopped whc^n unstable soil (t)ridi-tions were discoverf*d during the excavation ot the struc ture's foundation, raising (juestions about whether the dam as thcHi d(‘signi‘d might Ix* und(>r mined by water and fail  The frx was to <idd the (l('('p w.ill, wliK I) will rea( h in spots .is far as 100 feet intothi' earth In ensure st.ibili1\ of tli<' dam.
