Work To Resume On Lake Mead Water Project

(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Two weeks after a deadly accident, work on the intake project at Lake Mead will resume.

The state Occupational Safety and Health Administration has allowed the project’s contractor to continue tunneling operations for  the so-called “third straw.”  Crews are expected to go back to work within the next few days.

Forty-four-year-old Thomas Albert Turner died June 11th, when he was hit by a pressurized stream of cement.

The Southern Nevada Water Authority’s $800-million project to draw more drinking water from the lake is expected to wrap up in 2014.
