Work continues on the AOT ramp, see most recent reports from 2/23 – 2/27/09.
David Tollas shows his crew of volunteers and workshop participants how to mix cement into a soupy slurry.
This slurry is now applied to the new retaining wall.
The trick is to get the right consistency, so that it flows very slowly down the sloped wall and hardens into a very interesting surface, like miniature lava flow.
Before the slurry hardens fine silt is dusted onto this surface.
Once the coated slurry dries it will lighten in color.
Work continues with the completion of the level 1 railing and lots of details to finalize the ramp. We will report on this later.
On 3/4/09 we will start a series of retrospective on the pool stabilization project, alternating with reports of most recent events.
