Siskiyou Work Party

96newfernsWe have good news on the geotechnical front – the pile of earth that has been sitting where the Sodo will be built – has done its job much better than expected. The idea was to put something much heavier than a building there, and “pre-squish” the ground until it is done squishing. The ground settled 2-3 inches the first week, and hasn’t moved more than half an inch since, and that was when the heavy rains hit. This suggests that the soils are more stable than expected.
