Since our last site construction update, the stormwater chamber has been completed, and lifts of soil are beginning to be placed around the chamber, as you can see in the image below.
The trench dug in our last update has since been backfilled with rock to create the toebench to create a foundation for the fill slope to be constructed at the site. The second photo is a close-up of the portions that have been excavated.
The discharge point from the stormwater system, where the water will be released.
Next, for the best view of Newbury and to see all the progress completed at the 84 Lumber site so far, a few panorama shots.
The next group of photos show where the workers are putting a 12 inch lift on the site using fill. The truck brings in the fill, the bulldozer moves the fill to where it needs to be placed and the the roller compacts the fill so that it is structurally stable.
The following photos show the excavation of the sedimentation basin, where soil and rock are being laoded onto trucks that haul the material to the 84 Lumber site, where it is placed as fill.
