We knew they were going to dig up our front yard to install a new sewer line and
a new water line, but we didn't quite expect our street to be closed down to
one lane, with traffic backed up and our front yard looking like a scene of total
devastation. The new sewer line was buried 9 feet deep to end up below our new
slab. They tunneled under our sidewalk in 3 places and under some tree roots
to avoid damage to the tree or the concrete. We were without water for just
one night. It was too dark to take pictures when we got home, so these are
from the next morning.
Do you have a backhoe in your backyard? I do.
Burying everything. The mounds of dirt will slowly settle back into the holes
over the next several months.
They hit our neigbors gas line, so the gas company was out to fix it.
