scraping polling and dumping it’s a drama of monumental logistics often embalming some of the most powerful mechanized monsters ever devised earth movers on modern marvels some simple hand tools to gargantuan machines along with high-powered explosives we have literally moved mountains and sifted through the earth beneath our feet in the last hundred years we humans using new inventions.
Have moved more cubic yards of Earth that our predecessors did in the previous hundred thousand years at any given moment there are major earth moving projects in progress all over the globe on the south side of Las Vegas the fastest-growing city in America the hills are being readied for a new residential neighborhood this particular project which is one of the major projects.
we have going in the Las Vegas Valley right now currently has just under pieces of equipment that varies from very large bulldozers to small bulldozers to motor graders to scrapers and quite a few water pulls for dust control all the material up here on the health stays in the in the construction region some areas have large cuts others at large cutting soil from one area and baking take between.
Men with real barrels to haul the same amount of material were hauling modern machines have made it possible to easily tackle mammoth earth moving projects case in point in Southern California the three recently completed dams holding back Diamond Valley Lakes two hundred and sixty billion gallons of water and represent the largest earthwards project in the history of the United States.
Excavation began back in the entire reservoir project including the East Dam and the West End which we have is approximately hundred fifty million cubic yards planners had decided that a new reservoir was vital for Southern California’s future since the existing pipeline that comes from the Colorado River miles to the east crosses the earthquake rift zone of the San Andreas Fault water engineers figured that one day the big one would strike and this vital supply line might be cut off they resolved that this heavily populated.
