Dye's Valley HUB - Day 18

Work continued at Dye’s Valley HUB project today as the welding of the H.D.P.E. irrigation pipe began.    The 16” main line and valves of the new system were welded above ground before being buried.  Long lengths of pipe were welded and then staged before being lowered into a trench.  After the mainline is installed the laterals and irrigation heads can be installed.    

The welding process for the pipes and valves.

The routing of the pipe according to plans.

Mapping for irrigation heads also began today. The flags show the area where the heads will be located.
