Hydroseeding to start at EWEB East 40th site this Friday

Dear East 40th Neighbors,

On Friday, Nov. 19 crews will HydroSeed the excavated slopes as a way to stabilize the exposed soils.

HydroSeeding is a process where seed, mulch, fertilizer, soil amendments, and water are combined to form a slurry that is sprayed onto the ground to establish vegetation and control erosion.

Following is the current blasting schedule for the next couple of weeks:

  • Thursday, Nov. 18
  • Tuesday, Nov. 23
  • Wednesday, Nov. 24 (make up for Thanksgiving)

As a reminder, scheduled blasts will occur between 1-1:30 p.m. The actual blast will last only a couple of seconds.

Horn safety signals will sound 5 minutes and 1 minute before the blast and at the conclusion of the blast.

If you are near the construction site and hear a horn signal, please be aware blasting activity will occur shortly and follow instructions of site personnel or any additional signage that may be posted.
