(5) Jan 2011 Fixing the dam wall at 3rd dam

January 2011

 Peter Hammond volunteered to fix the leaking dam wall

A coffer-dam was built from rocks
Clay soil was stamped down making it watertight

 The hole was cleaned out

15 wheelbarrows of cement were mixed

It was packed into the hole, and along the whole bottom area of the wall

Finished! Within three days the water had covered  the coffer-dam and the dam filling up.
Great job!!
