Flood Defense on the Irrigation Line

Today we finished work on our new flood gate.This will divert the water of the Irrigation Line down to the river in times of flooding. This will protect the majority of the line from flood damage.

I am looking for the best line down.
 OK Looking good.

 Into action


 The placing of the wheels.


 Drilling. Lucas and Errol.

 Flattening and sealing the base of the gate. I am the Yesso man. Errol is making the mix and Victor is taking the photos.
Some fine tuning to get the correct flow into the tunnels. Yesso sets hard underwater. It is an amazing building material.

 Looking good.
 Perfect.
So there we are - an installed flood gate - the first on the line for at least four decades. Pray for rain.
