Free Fill Dirt

Most of this material is dredged from one of the lakes it will consist of a lot of sediment, sand, gravel, and poorly decomposed organic matter. With the proper attention and soil testing the material could prove to useful in some landscape situations. Anyone needing some of this material should call Ron Reed at the Water Treatment plant. His number is 891-7779.
