time for some more action shots.


Loading up some logs at the pond site!



Stripping topsoil

















some new mud projects, dredging out 500 yards. wonderful access and loading area. Atleast its for the city department so I dont have to worry about erosion and getting shut down lol






fixing a ditch, was washed out next to the walking trail. cut down the pine tree layed the bank back and installed some boulders












digging about 50 yards of mud out of a little silt pond




holding pit













old spider hoe I saw on the side of the rd

is that retention pond supposed to have that much silt/slop in it or do/were you cleaning that out? it would seem in a heavy rain the drain couldn't exit the water as fast as the pond would fill up given the amount of fall from the upper end of those properties.

that little pond had way more than anyone thought. Im not sure how deep it was suppose to be but they wanted that sediment plume taken out in the head section. I priced taking out 35 yard and ended up taking out 50 as thats what it took to fill the hole I dug.

that being said they need about 500 more dug out but with no place to put it and no access but inbetween two houses and on plywood this is what its gonna have to be!
