Streamside channels

Things are really coming together on the streamside channels. We expect that we'll have water flowing in them by this time tomorrow (late Thursday afternoon). Today, on what was probably the most beautiful day I've ever experienced out at Hengill, we got the channel racks assembled and finished construction on the dam.  The dam will provide a consistent water reservoir that will feed our channels all summer.

Our finished dam, the inlet pipe for our channels, and a nice pool of water (Lake Allison) 

The assembled PVC pipe frame that the channels will sit on. You can see from these photos that the snow is melty quickly now. It was even a sweat inducing 12 C (53 F) out there today!

The channels prepped and ready to for delivery tomorrow. Stay posted and soon you'll see some flowing channel action!
