VIDEO: Piankatank River New Reef Takes Shape
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Norfolk District, has just announced that the construction of a new reef in the Piankatank River is currently underway.
Crews are working about a half-mile from shore, using barges and cranes to place granite rock within the project limits.
For the first time granite rock will be used to construct the Piankatank River reef, previous reef construction projects in the tributary consisted of shell or crushed concrete.
Once complete, the Corps will monitor and adaptively manage the reef to ensure its long-term success.
