Pipeline Construction

Another sunny, but windy day and another section of the Wesauking Pipeline is in the ground.

The section of pipeline east of Joyce Road, between the road and our wetlands crossing, was placed in the morning and the back-filling started soon after.

A vibrating sifter bucket was used to remove rocks from the dirt used for back-filling.

View from the barn silo of the Wesauking Pipeline, east of Joyce Road. The cleared area, in the background of the photo, is the location of the valve assembly where the Wilmot and Wesauking pipelines intersect.

On the west side of Joyce Road, excavators work on the trenches for the next sections of the pipeline.

As one excavator digs a trench another excavator positions a load of sandbags that will be placed in the trench to support the pipeline.
