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.
