    nope im an operator , mostly in a cat 320 , but there are only three operator with us on this job so we jump around a little ....with that said most of the equipment is the subcontractors stuff there here doing the bulk of the dirt moving , the subs http://www.mackenzieco.com/ ....... the reason the pics are all over cause we only work a 10hr and they stay and do 13/14 hrs so everyday two guys from our company have to stay late to help out if need be with anything, so if no help is needed then i just take a ride on the gator and snap pics

    well its kinda just what it sounds like , the project started in some pretty hilly terrain, so the area when its done will have a big flat work area for drying material from the river (fill) and the area that the sediment will be placed will end up looking like a bowl (cut) .....the job is kinda simple they took "cut" all the topsoil off the site and piled it, then it becomes a cut and fill , cut the high spot down and fill the low spots which are all the valleys on this site....when i get back down there on monday i'll try and show a better pic of which is which

    well the slow times haven't really affected the environmental work much , and i haven't worked home much in the last two years , but i did for a couple months last summer and it hurt my wallet more the anything so i went back to this type of work

    realized i had some most resent pics that i never posted on my phone still, so here they are

    the first couple are of the "fill" area ,im not sure how much more it has to come up but its come up more then 20ft
    then the last two are generally were the area of the "cut" is you can see the cat 365 removing the top 10ft and the pans stripping the clay materail off
