    Unforeseen, buried

    While going over a future job with a local land developer he just had to take me over to another site to show me this huge boulder that is right in the way of a service line he is installing.... the pics don't show it that well, but it is huge ... approx 10x10m and probably 4m high. He has opted to "hammer" enough out to get the pipe through. He looked at all options and this was the cheapest at about 5k. Told him it was better him than me!
    This is not very common in these parts.

    DO you have anything in your contracts to cover occurances like this?

    ps. needed a excuse to use the new camera ... a sony digital Mavica

    I see other people run in to small rocks every now and then ;)

    We have run into a few but grade changes have helped there Just cover over the small stone.

    You can see in the pic some pieces that have been chipped off already ... To tell you the truth it kind of broke my heart seeing such a beautiful rock wasted.
