Windsor oaks before Pepper Farms
We were called to Windsor Oaks Retirement Community in Ames, Iowa, to investigate erosion around a storm sewer inlet,
as we have done several of these for them in the past.

We excavated, following the eroded hole as it meandered to a misaligned joint in the drainage pipe approximately 8' away from the inlet.

We sealed the joint and wrapped it with a rubber membrane. Then, we backfilled the excavation and compacting as we went.

Our final step was installing an erosion blanket to protect the newly excavated soil.

Winsor Oak's representative was pleased; "We are so fortunate to have you as someone we can always count on to help us
with our problems- we don't know who else we'd trust to keep us going.
Thanks for everything, especially coming soon after we discovered this and before we received a huge rain that
would most likely cause great damage. Thanks again Dave, tell your crew they are wonderful!"
