Many thanks to Colin Brooks for the fabulous two photos taken on the evening of the 26th, after much of the pond excavating had been completed for the day. Photos can also be seen on the Thurston Nature Center Facebook page.
Much of the work done on the 26th was associated with providing the “final touches” to the excavation work related to the construction of the deep water pool, channels, and Nesting Island.
ECT engineers were on site working with Anglin’s construction team, to verify that the actual “on-site work” matched the plans and permit requirements. Elevations, grades, depths, volume of sediment removal, and many other aspects of the work were reviewed. In most cases only minor modifications (a little more digging and more sediment removal) were needed as the majority of the work was meeting the project objectives.
