M.L. Chartiers is on the Niño Homes site to lay down soil erosion control features.  These include silt fences and straw blankets in the ditches and on the bare soil to prevent sediment run off into the creek and wetland.  There will not be any work on the well. 

Chartiers is performing the work for West Bay at my direction.
