|The first of two berms which will catch runoff and direct the excess water into the drain.|
|The catch basins are 30 inches in diameter and we used a 10 inch pipe to carry away the water.|
|We tied the basin drains into an old tile line that was intact and still functioning well. Stamped on the pipe was a month and year: "October 1918."|
We utilized larger than normal pipe in the bunkers (6 inch rather than the customary 4 inch.) We are also utilizing technology often found in septic leach fields. We installed 75 feet of leach field chamber domes. These domes are 12 inches tall and 18 inches wide and will store a significant volume of water beneath the sand during heavy rains when drain pipes become overwhelmed.
|A section of 6 inch perforated drain pipe connected to the leach field chamber.|
|We are forming the bunkers with plywood which will be removed once the sand is installed, and sod has rooted down.|
|Nearly ready for sand and sod!|
