Environmental restoration construction in winter - You'd better be Gritty!
Ecotone is currently working on 3 stormwater/stream projects which must be completed by the end of February due to stream closure rules which do not allow stream construction during certain times of the year. On one of the coldest mornings of the year, Ecotone continues to renovate a stormwater pond in Howard County, MD, reconstruct stream also in Howard County, and stabilize stream banks on a farm in Harford County, MD. These guys deserve a round of applause, a case of beer, and a nice big hug when they get home tonight. They are GRIT personified.
