Second Dock and New Water System Installed at Sierpe del Pacifico -
This Spring saw the installation of a brand new 6 slip dock on the western edge of the Sierpe del Pacifico Property. The dock was constructed by Sierpe del Pacifico Operations Manager Guillermo Gonzalez.
The dock features a sleek design utilizing round steel framing and a pressure treated pine deck. It is ideally positioned in an area of little current regardless of whether the tide is coming in or going out.
This dock will provide faster and easier river access for 2/3 of the Sierpe del Pacifico lots. It is also located right next to the community gardens, ideal for anyone who wants to grab a pineapple, some limones, or plantains on their way to their Sierpe del Pacifico residence.
A new water delivery system was also installed along the western 2/3 of the property in early January. All Sierpe del Pacifico lots now have a water hook-up ready to go.
An engineering firm from San Jose was brought in for this project. They measured the distance and elevation change to each house from the holding tank in order to recommend the correct size tubing to generate the desired water pressure and volume for use in the homes. Guillermo and other members of the Sierpe del Pacifico team oversaw the work.
