What a Difference!

Friday, March 11th 2011

What a difference a day makes!  Yesterday the lake was empty of water and, although it was muddy, Guy, David and Eddie were able to carry on working, as the little stream which feeds the lake was flowing around the edge of the work area.

Siince the rain last night the water is flowing in faster than the water gate can take it away.  The consequence of this you can see below.  Guy (below) in the digger, loading one of the trucks with spoil.

The dumper truck made a miniature tidal wave as it left with each load.

The helical gear at the water gate was opened as far as possible this morning in an attempt to drain the water away from the work area.  With luck, and if there is no rain tonight, we should be able to see a difference tomorrow.
