Exploratory Holes are being dug on Home Field

Paul Want writes: It would be that Jones Homes are digging holes in Home Field, again.  I understand this is a drainage test where are dug, filled with water and then timed as to how long it takes to drain.

Would suggest the developers have read the comments about flooding, are doing further research so as to counter any objections we all have. Time to get our ducks in a row.
