He was also heavily involved with the leveling and raising of existing pump stations near the waterways.
While working on the pump stations, George designed his own method for raising and leveling houses. in 1978, he left the Corps and opened Aldrete & Sons Shoring Company and provided excellent service to locals since.
George passed away in June of 2021 but left his legacy to his son, Geo, and grandson, Brad, who continue to own and operate Aldrete and Sons Shoring Company today.
