Southern Pacific Pond Turtle Project
Bill rented a trencher on January 16, 2007 to cut ground for the conduit and pipe for the power and water for the ponds pumps.
Darrell, Bill, and Bob Showers figure out where to cut the trench from the house to the ponds.
Bill trenches the first of two trenches. The water and power had to go in separate trenches for safety.
Reed Tollefson, Bill, Bob, and Darrell all get busy working on completing the trenches.
February 10, 2007, parts come in and the team gets busy reshaping the holes to fit the liners.
