Foundation drainage work is complete at the Warehouse. To improve foundation drainage, work has proceeded to: 1) Excavate along the north and west sides of the building. 2) Repoint deteriorated mortar in the stone foundation. 3) Fill openings in the foundation created by previous waterworks operations. 4) Install french drain pipes. 5) Backfill with drain rock. FOSR members Bob Reynolds and Steve Ayraud installed much of the drain pipe. The Shepherdstown Water Department removed abandoned pipes and debris.
For additional photos of the work see the Warehouse Renovation Gallery.
