ABERDEEN, Wash. – Giant blue semi-trailers at the gateway plaza? It’s all part of the construction in Aberdeen. The water recover company Rain for Rent says they’re being used because the department of Ecology doesn’t let you replace water, that’s displaced by construction, back into the river. There will be 11 tanks and a filtration system visiting the gateway plaza by Monday.
The system will filter, store, and remove water from the Chehalis river that leaches into the construction site during high tides. The company couldn’t say how long the tanks would be at the Wal-Mart intersection, that depends on the needs of the site.
