Landscapers began work on the 2017 erosion control program between Olson Spur and Ridge Side Court earlier this week. The entire proejct has been delayed due to weather and scheduling conflicts.
Crews are adding topsoil and planting special shade-area grass in nets to hold the seed in place until it can germinate and establish roots. Large stones and temporary bales of straw are being placed on hillsides to help slow stormwater runoff. Instead of ground-wood mulch, pine needles are being used to mulch around trees to reduce the chances that it will be displaced by heavy rainfall.
Similar work will commence on the NE hillside between Olson Spur and Silver Valley Blvd as soon as the RS/OS work is complete.
Please stay offf the freshly planted areas to give the grass a chance.
