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 luly 2012 (leadline, after whi( h $12 million in f(‘d-eral grant tunds could possitily be torfeited.
