Wharf Construction, Lahave River, Bridgewater, NS:

The proposed project will involve the construction of a wharf made of pressure treated lumber that will reach 13.72 m from the shoreline, supported by one pier. The pier will be a prefab concrete pier measuring 3.66 m by 3.66 m for a footprint of 13.40 m2 located below the low water mark. The pier will be filled with granite stone approximately half way. There will be no excavation work required, instead only slight leveling in the 3.66 m x 3.66 m area where the actual wharf will be located.
