We're getting there!

Visitors to Torrs Hydro may have noticed the flurry of activity down on site. As the rain has eased off, volunteers have been preparing to replace Archie's bottom bearing.
A coffer dam has been built in order to install a second stop log channel. The stop logs have arrived (larch) and are being placed in a specially designed rack on the metal safety casing. Next job will be getting lifting gear in situ to raise Archie and replace his bearing.

Let's hope he doesn't find the operation too painful!
