    Anyone have an idea of what they are building/digging South of Canby, just west of Barlow Rd? Huge hole about 15 feet deep with, with the dirt mounded around it. I thought it maybe an expansion of sewer treatment or something CEMEX is doing across from their existing plant.

    That's the hole they plan to put PDXer's common sense in, before the November election arrives.

    LOL

    You only need a hole about the size of a soda can to bury the amount of common sense
    left in Portland.

    I was going to say it was probably another in a series of giant Rat holes for the various levels of Government to throw our taxes into.The regular landfill's are probably getting overloaded...
    ...For many years they simply used to flush it into the ocean, but what with Global Warming they started using landfills when Al Gore convinced them to worry about our money-waste raising sea level changes and they decided to blame it on icebergs melting.
    (ever wonder why they were always talking about our landfills reaching capacity a few years ago...they needed the room in landfills for your taxes)

    It's a landfill for all the BS pouring out of Salem.

    You cannot dig a hole deep enough for that.

    Throw our governor and all her Dem. puppets in first, then fill the hole with concrete!

    Thanks, that makes sense. CEMEX expansion seemed most likely.
