WAITSBURG -- Most of the grain in a weakened bin has been removed and transported to another storage site, Northwest Grain Growers Inc. General Manager Dave Gordon said this morning.
The bin developed a split and leak along the east side early last week, and a portion of Bolles Road was closed as a precaution.
An engineer from Haskins Company in Spokane examined the bin, and advised Northwest Grain Growers on how to remove the grain. An article published in the U-B Nov. 18 incorrectly stated Haskins Company built the bin.
After the bin is empty and cleaned, Northwest Grain Growers will determine how to repair it, Gordon said.
