This is the site map!

(You can view it larger in the gallery at the bottom of this post)

*The numbers placed underneath the pictures represent the numbers on the map, and the arrows represent the direction they were taken.

In the below panorama, moving from left to right, this shows the completed excavation, notice where the excavator is loading soil, in the upper left, the lower portion shows the excavation that has already taken place! The big mounds of dirt, beyond this truck and excavator are the stock piles of topsoil. There are three trucks having the soil from the excavator to fill the embankment is shown in the distance of the panorama. After the trucks upload the soil at the embankment, the bulldozer spreads the soil out into an even layer about 12″ thick. Then the roller compacts the soil in place to complete the fill embankment. All of this work is taking place on the residential portion of the site.

The trench box is used for safety, and allows the workers to excavate to the full depth necessary for the sewer line while supporting the ground adjacent to the trench.
