Massive mound of dirt making way for towers downtownOctober 2, 2017 9:44 am
The 12-year-old gargantuan dirt pile at the corner of Water Street and Sunset Drive in Kelowna is finally coming down.
An excavator started work on the site Tuesday, filling up trucks to haul away the material and make way for two highrise condominiums.
As dirt removal goes, it’s a momentous task. An estimated 33,000 cubic metres of extra soil, six metres high, covers the 1.2-hectare site. Getting rid of it will take months.
Clearing the site will also end a dozen years of having to stare at an unsightly mound.
