Pipeline Still Closed but Work has Begun

The guesstimate for the reopening of the trail is two weeks.

Update from RVA H2O

Weekly Pipeline Update because our construction work has begun! 🎉👏🙌🙏🥳
First and foremost, a reminder that, as of August 2nd, all sanitary (wastewater) flow has been diverted upstream at Tredegar, so any flow you may see leaking from Pipeline is river water that’s seeping in from Haxall Canal, groundwater, and/or stormwater from Richmond’s summer rain.
Now for the good stuff: The scoop on the repair process! ⤵️
All materials and supplies needed for repairs have arrived, and CSX gave us the green-light to start working on the pipe on Monday (09.13.2021), so our crews got to work! 💪
This week our team is using a cement substance to fill in those pesky leaking holes along the pipe.
Then, next week, our team will layer an epoxy and a mesh on the bottom and surrounding the entire pipe’s external circumference.
Following the completion of all this work, our team will once again CCTV (closed-circuit television) the pipe to get an internal look at how we did. Only after we check our work and give it the good ol’ thumbs up 👍 will the trail and beaches alongside it be reopened. (We think we’re about two weeks away from that point.)
Until then, Pipeline trail and its adjacent beaches are closed from Brown’s Island (under the 9th Street bridge) to the downstream, eastern end of the trail behind Virginia Street and Vistas On The James.
More soon, folks—stay tuned!
