I thought it would be fun to have a thread in each category to discuss exciting upcoming projects. We can list upcoming projects under these threads or comment/ask questions about other planner's upcoming projects.
An exciting site where I have an upcoming project is Ordnance Reef (OR), Waianae, Hawaii. The Army Corps will be conducting a removal action there eventually. Current plans include a technology demonstration for using a remotely controlled vehicle to clean ordnance from the reef at depths between 12ft and 100ft or so. This demonstration will hopefully eliminate the need for putting divers in the water and at risk.
NOAA has also recently conducted surveys for fish toxicity and risk to human and environmental health from exposure (mainly through ingestion) of fish caught of OR.
I always enjoy working on these types of projects. When all is said and done, you are left with a quantifiable result. You can look back at it and feel like you have contributed something to future generations. Pretty exciting stuff I must say. Here is a link to the Army Corps public information site on OR.
Let me know what you think.
