August 2011 Draining the lane below the school

 August  2011 

 After we had finished removing the papyrus from the top dam we moved to the  muddy lane below the school

First  the fallen tree had to be removed

The first "bite"of the trench

Within two hours the trench had filled with water
 from the countless springs

Now the pipes had to be laid under the path

The first of three pipes went in

 and the water started draining into the stand of poplar trees

The final job was to flatten and compact the soil to make a road

     All done --  a big improvement!
     The trench will be filled with large rubble and will continue to drain
 the water out.
