Excessive Excavation

Is TM doing an excessive excavation ?? Judge for yourself.

Between the existing grade and proposed grade, 6 to 9 meter will be removed !!
The TableTop area is approx. 10000 square meter.
They removed 64000 cubic meter !!! (See May 12th Post)
(more with the add. excavation for the road and rest of homes)

It is equal the size of a Football Field covered with dirt 30 feet high !!

Hundreds of hours of heavy machines work and hundreds of trips by large trucks to bring the material to the front and back. That generates dust, noise, vibration, pollute our air with diesel exhaust and will contribute to soil erosion.

That is excessive and NOT appropriate for an Environment Sensitive Area and within the municipality of Peachland!!
