A small excavator with a blade attachment is entering the canal. It will be used to push all the muck and debris out of the path of the AquaDam. Sharp debris such as rebar, sharp rocks, or metal scrap can damage the AquaDam and cause a leak. Bulky debris will prevent a good seal from occurring, allowing increased seepage into the work area.
