Taylor Yard: Day After Posting Dirt Storm Photos, Water Trucks In Use

Photo: Diane Edwardson, April 9, 2013.  Tuesday, the winds were not as high, but suddenly there were water trucks in use (to help control fugitive dust) on the site of Taylor Yard where market rate condos and senior housing is being built on Metrolink property.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

Monday's Santa Ana Winds sent a choking cloud of dirt into Elysian Valley.  We posted photos here and on The Eastsider.  Suddenly, Tuesday they were using water trucks.  (You can also see bulldozers, portapotties and piles of dirt covered in plastic: signs of grading for construction.) 

I apologize to my friends and neighbors in Elysian Valley for not getting the photos up sooner Monday and yesterday.
