Geothermal Project Update
Last week trees were selectively taken down and pavement milled for reuse as fill on this site. The construction fence went up Thursday and Friday. During the week of 5/23, we will begin installation of storm water management system. Tentatively, blasting will begin Wednesday 5/25 and will continue until completion (TBD). 

For more information and pictures of the progress, you can visit Paul Lundberg's project blog.
