Construction at Marlow Anderson
R/C Field: "There will be construction activity at
Hobart landfill over the coming weeks. They will be doing some light
excavation work on the north (lower) part of the landfill to evaluate the
integrity of some of the piping and cover penetrations. They don’t think it
should interfere with the flying club activities as the largest proposed
machinery to be used is a small track hoe. Most notable will be more
vehicular and foot traffic. Depending on what they find, other activities
may be necessary that could interfere. Will keep you up to speed as they
learn more." (5-1-14)
