It was an eventful day when ten community members showed up to lend a hand with moving the massive tank. First the tank was carefully laid on its side and cleaned. Then it was lifted and cradled onto the trailer from where it was pulled by vehicle to as close as possible to its final resting place. After offloading the tank, it had to be inched through dense bush and over huge boulders to get it into position. When the tank was finally placed on the pre-prepared gravel base up on a rocky outcrop it was cause for big celebration and we all ate together and shared stories of the day’s achievements.
We want to thank Marcus Westberg and his family for donating $600 towards pipes and fittings during their stay at the camp last year. This made it possible for us to plumb up the camp kitchen area and have running water! Follow the links below to read what Marcus and his brother-in-law wrote about their experiences when they visited us.
Future plans for the camp’s water system is to add two more of these tanks and to install a stronger pump that will pump water to the tanks from the river.
