IMPROVEMENT OF HARBOR AT GREAT SODUS BAY, NEW YORK.

REPORT OF OPERATIONS.

The work of repairing the superstructure of the east and west piers, and east breakwater, was begun, with hired labor, October 22, and continued to November 27, 1908, when work was suspended.

The superstructure of both piers, and the east breakwater, was put in fair condition, at a total cost of $996.95; 27,668 feet b. m. of hemlock timber and plank were used.

Work was resumed May 13, 1909, when the concrete plant was transferred to Great Sodus Harbor from Charlotte. The work of tearing out the old wooden superstructure on both east and west piers, and replacing it with concrete of the same form as that used at Charlotte and Little Sodus harbors, was begun.

At the close of the fiscal year 240 feet of old superstructure had been torn out and 120 feet partly torn out, 30 feet of concrete superstructure placed and blocks set for 30 feet more, 190 cubic yards concrete made. The old cribs have been strengthened by bolting posts to the side walls, and placing iron rods from face to båck walls.

The channel has deteriorated to a limiting depth of 114 feet at low water and will be restored to project depth during the season of 1909.

IMPROVING HARBOR AT LITTLE SODUS BAY, NEW YORK.

REPORT OF OPERATIONS.

At the beginning of the fiscal year work was in progress upon the project for replacing with concrete all of the timber superstructure of the west pier, and 461 feet of the east pier, at an estimated cost of $70,000, the work to be done by hired labor and the United States plant.

During the season of 1908 there were put in the west pier five deck sections of concrete superstructure, each 30 feet long, and one section 26 feet long.

In the east pier there were made five deck sections of 30 feet each, making a total of completed work in both piers of 326 linear feet.

In addition to the above work, 60 linear feet of the old superstructure of the east pier were torn out, and the back-wall leveling for concrete blocks placed.

The work during the entire season was greatly hampered by the extremely high level of Lake Ontario, which had the effect of considerably increasing the cost of the work.

The cost of the work done per linear foot was $36.06.

Work was resumed May 1, 1909. To the end of the fiscal year 240 linear feet of concrete superstructure were placed, and 240 linear feet additional old superstructure torn out nearly to water level. Sixty-four concrete blocks made.

May 1, 1909, the United States dredging plant was transferred from Charlotte to Little Sodus Harbor and began redredging the channel between the piers and to deep water in the lake, to restore the project depth of 15 feet below low water for a width of 150 feet. At the close of the fiscal year it had been restored for a width of 100 feet, beginning 50 feet from the west pier. It will be restored for the full width during the season of 1909.

At the beginning of the fiscal year work was in progress upon the project for rebuilding 1,175 linear feet of the outer breakwater, under plan "A,” which was approved March 26, 1907.

This work was carried on until December 19, when the plant was laid up for the winter.

From the beginning of the fiscal year to the close of work 5,585 tons of rubble and 5,127 tons of capping stone were received and placed in the work between stations 7 and 9+50.

Upon the crib sunk in the breach of 1907, located between stations 7 +66 and 8+86, 120 linear feet of capping were completed.

Sixteen concrete wall blocks were made to be put in the banquette deck. Twelve of these blocks were placed for making decks, but were twice washed off the wall before the decks could be commenced.

Sixty feet of banquette deck were finally made, but it was so late in the season and the weather was so stormy that it was deemed best not to attempt making any more until spring.

During the season 1,780 tons of riprap stone were received and placed at breaches in the lake face of cribs at stations 14 and 29 +50; also to protect the ends of the new stonework, especially the west end where 30 feet of the old wooden parapet were torn out early in December. This riprap was further strengthened by using three of the concrete wall blocks weighing each about 13 tons.

The extremely high water in Lake Ontario made the carrying on of the work very slow and expensive, especially as the capping was started at a depth of 18 feet below low water, making it necessary to work in depths of 22 feet through a large part of the season.

Divers were required to place the stone, which made it exceedingly slow.

The timber deck of the outer breakwater was repaired where necessary and 14,097 feet b. m. of hemlock timber and plank were used, at a cost of $510.53 for labor and materials.

The deck of the inner breakwater was also repaired at a cost for labor and materials of $176.18, 4,875 feet b. m. of hemlock timber and plank being used.

During the winter minor repairs were made to the plant.

April 1, 1909, work was begun fitting out the plant for the season, and during that month delivery of riprap stone under the contract with the Adams & Duford Company, of Chaumont, N. Y., was begun.

To the end of the fiscal year 12,312.35 tons were received and placed in the lake face of the outer breakwater, the work being delayed by the failure of the contractor to furnish the quantity of stone called for by the contract.

The building of two scows was partly completed, the work being delayed by the nonreceipt of timber.
