12/6/2009 Walter Pickel 0' The team hiked out again today to shoot video and hoping to extend the line. However, due to the recent rains the spring is now siphoning. Basically, the entire swamp was being pulled into the system.
11/29/2009 Walter Pickel 80' We hiked the team out in order to replace the 800' of line already in the system with knotted 32#. Additionally, the line was finally surveyed. Very nice system with positive flow. Line currently ends at 192'.
