    very cool. I guess by the size of those culverts, you guys get a lot of rain. Do you use rip rap at the header for the pond to help keep silt out?

    If you burned brush like that here in NY you might be out of prison by the time you would be eligible to draw Social Security.

    yeah I don't think it could ever get full but that's what the plans had for the pipe. I could do that but I just went a few feet up the creek and dug a few scoops out to act as a little catch basin for any silt or leaves

    I always chuckle at your pictures without all the machines lined up before/after a job

    What size excavators do you guys have now?
