Improving the view of the Springdale waterfront has been considered long before there were ever talks of marina.

As part of a project a local Green Team undertook for restoration and enhancement it contacted owners to remove waste.
It seems one owner of property there, Cyril (Cog) Pelley, has decided to continue by putting a couple men to work to improve the look and function of his property and building.
While Pelley operated a backhoe to move fill to the back of the old structure, Calvin Inder and Colin Saunders were busy constructing an extension on the wharf to help ward off some of the seasonal elements, such as wind and ice away from his boat.
The process involved cutting logs, rinding them, burning the rind and other debris collected on the shoreline and hauling rock with a four-wheeler to ballast the float outs once they were constructed and in place, the latter being the most difficult part, said Saunders.
He explained how building a new pier is a lengthy process that can last for weeks on end, down to the final stage putting the top on.As part of a project a local Green Team undertook for restoration and enhancement it contacted owners to remove waste.
