Larry Volk called Mike Waters this afternoon (7-30-07) about 2:30, he had been out on the salt.
Conditions are as follows:
There is standing water, about 6" deep at the end of the road,
There is about 2" at the starting lines and it's about 1" deep at the 2 mile.
The courses are in need of further work (Dragging) due to the flooding.
The salt is mostly dry around the side of Saldero Dike.
Larry went to visit Russ Draper at the Intrepid plant and get his take on what to expect.
The consensus was, between Larry and Russ Draper, that if we get no more rain then evaporation will most likely take care of the remaining water.
Russ estimates the evaporation rate at about 1/2" per day with the 90 deg. plus weather they are having. Of course the wind will help also.
A segment of our work force is scheduled to arrive this coming Sunday and by then we'll have a better picture of things to come. Stay tuned for more updates!
