Work will take place over two construction seasons throughout much of the bay, and will conclude in January 2017. Pope Resources and OPG Properties will remove approximately 70,000 cubic yards of contaminated sediment and wood waste, and approximately 6,000 creosoted pilings and overwater structures.
