LBNL Fiber Optic Distributed Sensor Survey Project to start week of December 8, 2014

December 4, 2014

BGC Operations and Facilities Management staff will commence digging two ~100 meter long shallow trenches to the west of the NRLF starting approximately Tuesday December 9, 2014. The trenches are being excavated for placement of burying fiber optic cable as part of the LBNL Fiber Optic Distributed Acoustic Sensor project. Once cables have been placed in the trenches they will be backfilled with the excavated soil. The campus Office of Environment, Health & Safety has sampled soils in the area. For more information on the Soils Management Plan evaluation of this activity see the SMP Forms page for project specific SMP Form A, SMP Form B, sampling plan letter, and the DTSC approval letter of the work.
