The Gates Are Up

Posted by Neal Spackman almost 8 years ago

Even a Door Can Have Stacked Functions

We are just about to close up the demonstration site--we have installed two large steel gates, and now have about 300 meters of razor wire left to run atop the earth berm and then we'll be able to control the grazing inside.

The Eastern Gate to the demonstration site is where large trucks will be able to enter--but aside from being a door it is also going to be the site for the overflow area of the entire site and the last dam in the flow of the water path.  The door's posts will serve as the keys for the dam, adding strength against any large floods.  Check out what it looks like now, before we've built the dam or read the blog post:
