One friendly worker told me that they estimated the old line was put in around 1930 and certainly it looked a little worse for wear (see below).
On Tuesday, the crew got the new piping covered on the east side of Miller Avenue (below).
And then they started digging a long trench on the west side of the road (Prairie Hill land). The road has been closed for the duration of this sewer work.
Here's a close-up shot of the huge shovel as it digs deeply right along our eastern perimeter.
Each day brings new progress. We make sure we stay out of the way of these hard-working men. But we can't help but keep watch as changes take place!
