Okinawa Times and Ryukyu Shimpo wrote that work for constructing a 250-meter-long seawall for use as a platform for unloading from transport ships dirt and sand for landfill will likely start this week off Camp Schwab. The Okinawa Defense Bureau has just completed transplanting some 830 colonies of coral reef in the vicinity to other locations for the latest construction operation, which the bureau claims can move forward sans fresh approval from the governor. As the office allegedly wants to speed up landfill for the FRF construction, it has begun installing screens in the water around the new seawall to prevent pollution from the pouring of sand. However, the prefectural government reportedly insists on the need to obtain fresh approval from the governor on account of the soft seabed in the area.
