Week Six

Elton's final week was exceedingly busy. As his time to leave approached, much was still to be accomplished.

Trenches were dug to lay the plumbing from the swamp to the water tank.

 The tank is set in place. As the tank was being filled, Elton and the guys got a lesson in construction.  This was the only mishap they had while working.  The 2500L proved to be too heavy for the planks.
In order to alleviate the pressure, they drained the tank by testing the sprinkler system.  Softening the ground is the final step before they are able to begin plowing and planting.
Once the tank was drained,  gum poles were added to brace it but in reality a metal tank stand is one of our future needs.
