NEWS ARTICLES: (7/04) - Site work advances at new port terminal

Workers began installing 3.5 million feet of wick drains at the former
Navy base in North Charleston, where the State Ports Authority plans to
build a 280-acre terminal.

Wick drains let water move up from soils below the surface so the site can
settle before construction begins. The drains are pushed as deep as 81
feet into the ground and covered with a thick layer of soil. Pressure
brings water up the drains and into the drainage layer.

Installing the drains and laying soil on top should take two and half
months, and the soil will remain on the area for another six to nine
months.
