Water on the mountain

Before we hook up the water to the bathrooms recently built at the Camp, a water cistern needed to be dug on the mountain across the highway. Johnny, Noe and Kiki have spent the last week and a half digging and preparing the hole for concrete. First, rocks had to be taken up from the road to the cistern location.
And Johnny told his cardiologist he was just doing "administrative work"!


The rocks are thrown into the hole...



then leveled. A layer of concrete will be placed on the bottom and sides.

Two small springs empty into the cistern also. Kiki drinks the water, saying that it is not contaminated, just dirty...and a little dirt is good for you!

Johnny prepares to make another load.
