Last week he and Ray painted it, and today they fixed it to the weir stonework. The hope is that larger items will be carried over the weir by the water flowing across the strainer. The trash strainer measurements are to be taken once the frame is in place.
In the process, they found that the second weir is accessible at this time of year, due to the low vegetation, and also found an old mine truck abandoned in the river bank. It looks as though it had been filled with stones and used to reinforce the bank.
