I mentioned last week that it is not prudent to conduct any type of earth disruption work during wet, rainy weather. I also mentioned that the forecast at that time was for rain almost all week, but that forecasts can change, and all we needed was a two-to-three-day window to continue our work. And that is exactly what transpired, allowing us to complete another 200' of drainage on #12 between storms. Below are pictures of the progress for those that are interested.
Enrique and crew laying the plywood out and cutting the sod on Wednesday.
the first clear day after recent cold storms that started Friday 2/24/23 and ended
Tuesday 2/28/23 producing 2" of rain.
Good visual of underground drainage install. This is a Y junction of 4"
perforated pipe on a bedding of 1" found drain rock
Above and below are good visuals of the DI (drainage inlet) tie-in and the beginning of the drain
filled with gravel.
Sod re-installed over the gravel drainage pattern.
Overhead view of the two sections of drainage that was completed the past two weeks between rain storms.
Looks like we have a very similar pattern coming up next week as we did this week. If this pattern holds, we will go for another 200' of drainage on #12, middle of the week.
