Digging holes (1)

The plumber started on site today. The borers did the most amazing piece of engineering and bored right under the road.

In this picture, the two guys holding the borer are physically pushing the drill bit right under the road to where the water main is on the other side. Incredible!

The plumbers then connected the storm water outlet, mains water in, tapped off the mains. Then they started to excavate for the sewer. We found it eventually, some distance away from where it was supposed to be.

They then dug the trench for the sewer and left it open ready for the sewer line inspection tomorrow.
