VCSU Update: 7/13/2011 CB&G are in the process of fine-grading the class 5 material that was placed on the field last week. Today they were working on pouring the exterior curbs surround the field. In the next couple days, permeable filter paper will be placed on the field. These pieces of filter paper get welded together by melting plastic.
