If you’ve traveled the Warrenton Causeway in the last week, you may have noticed an unusual looking boat sitting just off the Arab Water intake near the bridge.

An interesting project is taking place there. The intake is being raised 11 feet.

The funny-looking boat looks almost like an excursion boat. It’s a place where the dive team working on the project can warm up. The surface temperature of the lake is currently in the mid-50s.

The support team pumps warm water into the divers’ suits, but they still get cold.

For more on this story please pick up Wednesday’s Tribune or purchase an e-edition.
