Recently workers started filling the new sink holes along the fence line. Standing way up high on the concrete piling cap, a worker lowers a bucket down into the pit where another fills it with dirt. It's then hoisted up by hand and poured over the fence to fill in the areas where the ground continues to settle. This is still trespassing. It is not "repairs" or "improvements". The owner of 391 16th Street has told them not to fill in anything, but they always seem to return. If it wasn't so futile, I would find the DIY attempt at stopping the settling using a five gallon bucket amusing, especially in contrast to the vastness of the work going on in the back ground.
