Fascinating, thanks for sharing. Very helpful to me since I just purchased a lot in Monarch Grove. It'd going to be very beautiful area when done.

The scale and organization of the site prep work is staggering, approaching what I've seen in the middle east and China. Very impressive ground remediation.

The large piles of dirt are called surcharging a site. To compact the soil, they add a significant load on top of the existing soils using the weight of the additional soils they bring in to compress the existing soils below. It only works for specific soils. They install monitors to determine the compaction they achieve of the existing soils. It is not used a lot, I think I have seen it on sites a couple of times over the 30 years have been interested in that type of thing. In this day and age, where time is money, most developers are not willing to spend the time waiting as it is a fairly slow process. Don't know if it also helps in the areas geological testing showed susceptible to sink holes.

Great photos. Amazing how quickly the Villages builds now. Things change weekly. They'll be down to CenterHill before we know it, yet we are still not and probably never will be a real town.

Thumbs up

Nice photos!!! Loved looking at them. The Villages growth is simply amazing. And as a pilot myself from WI, a nice touch to get the strut or leading edge of the wing in some of the shots! The only thing better would be a photo of you (pilot) at the controls. Next flight up maybe?

I think this method is probably way cheaper than Lime, Gravel, or concrete slurry. I have never seen this either, but can't imagine it is easy to get enough compaction with this sand and all the rain!

After reading the sad news of the B-17 crash with fatalities in Connecticut, I had to reflect a moment on my flying an aircraft that is only two years newer. All pilots examine the risks and then do what we can to minimize them. It was a super day to fly last Sunday and I hope you enjoy the pictures taken from a little higher than drones are allowed to fly.
