It’s electric – Important soil tests along Hurontario LRT route are grounded in some cool, and needed, science

There’s not so mad science taking place along the HuLRT route. Crews are using math and special devices to look at how electrical currents move through the earth. The small impulses will help them construct the power substations that will be used to bring the route to life. Time to geek out on getting the Hurontario light rail transit route, well grounded. It was the … Continue reading It’s electric – Important soil tests along Hurontario LRT route are grounded in some cool, and needed, science
