East Meadows Clean up

Qualcon has begun culvert work in East Meadows subdivision the first week of October. We have Alpine County approval to store wet rock on the second parking pad coming into East Meadows so it can drain. This saves the HOA money in hauling costs. Qualcon will then haul it out of the valley. We also have a backhoe coming to further clear drains and culverts preparing for winter. Summit Plumbing will begin their vac work on or before the 16th and will last approximately six days. Clean up is foremost on our minds with Qualcon providing street sweepers. This year we also had Eastern Sierra Engineering perform a study of our roads and drainage systems. This will help our long-term planning and achieve a realistic reserve study.

We have completed all the critical work and a lot more. The new drainage for Jumiper Ridge is in. All the culverts are vacuumed out which needed to be done. We have moved tons of rock with the backhoe, which saved us a lot of time and money for the vac truck. All debris has been removed from the valley and we are still working on the reports. Our engineer came out again the week before last to check on our progress. She has been instrumental in helping coordinate our communication with the Juniper Ridge Board.

We still have a lot of work to do next summer, such as the area between the Goldbergs and The Cannings old house on Larkspur. For this year , we put felt cloth down and laid sandbags in the ditch as well as putting in erosion control wattles (those long round roles of burlap with hay inside) in spots. The drain above The Cannings driveway is another bad spot where we put down burlap and felt cloth along with some wattles. That might have to reconstructed next year.

We have also reseeded all the areas which were disturbed this year.
