Pump Baby, Pump!

Sunday, February 15th, 2009

The much needed rain arrived today.  Big time.

We went to the job site at 2:00 pm today, and only one of the three pumps were running.  This was not good.  The breaker on the temporary power pole had tripped, so power wasn’t going to the two pumps and only the pump from the swimming pool was working.  The water level was above the trenches for the drain pipes leading to the sewage ejector pit.

Heavy rains caused the water level to fill up the trenches where the pipes run to the sewage ejector pit.
