Firework Show

When writing a new post I always go back to the last one and re-read it. In the opening of the last post I mention that a lot has happened; some good and some not so good. After that post I got many emails of condolence about the not so good news of loosing my dog. Thank you for reaching out to me and remembering a remarkable animal, it brightened my day.

Hey, guess what? More stuff has happened on our progress to having a new water source and  practice area. Projects are like the 4th of July fireworks show. You anxiously wait until the time is right, then you get a few ooohs and ahhhs as it progresses, and then at the end it seems 90% of the show happens. Well, we are at the 80% mark in the show and the climactic end is setting up.

14 inch main line tie in

The main line to the new pump station has been tied into the existing system.

National Well Drillers setting up

On Monday our well drillers set up. They are anticipating 2 10 hour days to get a test hole to 1,000 feet.

Pump station pad in the early stages of construction
The pump station slab gets poured this week. It is large enough to house our injection equipment and tanks, keeping the area tidy.

By the end of this week our pond liner installation will begin. Our haul out of material from the pond to the practice area will be complete, and the practice short game area will be rough graded.

The big finale is not here yet, but just like the 4th of July, expect that at the very end things will happen quickly with lots of oohs and aahs.
