Installation progress report


Pardon the shouting but after all this time and combined effort of so many volunteers and donors …

You can probably understand that reaction.

A fence, a digger and a pile of dirt
Fittings according to Screw Pile, the subcontractor that did the alignment
Heavy Industries and Landform worked to smooth out the dirt and install pipes

While that was going on, between 20 and 29 April, 2020, The City of Calgary installed the water valves and lines to the pipes. The water flowed just to prove it was there, and then The City staff shut it off to await the plumbers, likely tomorrow or Monday (1 or 4 May, 2020). Water for Riley was there to capture the moment.

Every thing is ready for Heavy Industries to install the drinking fountain TOMORROW. (shouting again, can’t help it).
