Morton’s construction team has begun grading the Waterman Street site. Our new shelter facility will sit behind the existing house on the lot, which we’ll be using as a reception hub and public outreach center. The entire lot is situated on a slope, so there’s a fair amount of site grading to be done.
Prior to breaking ground, the crew installed silt fencing, which serves the purpose of erosion control and keeps all sediment on-site. Shortly after the fencing went up, we experienced an intense thunderstorm and torrential downpour, which immediately demonstrated just how well this fencing does its job!
