Drainage Update

Norma found the guy who did the original drainage job! He came over for a look and said he would take care of it. He will dig out the ditch, expose the drain pipe, determine how big the blockage is and clear it out the best way he can. He will also install a catch basin part way up the bank to separate the water from the silt and pipe the catch basin outlet directly into the pipe heading to the ocean. We will have to empty the catch basin periodically, he has no idea how often, maybe a couple of times a year.

This will all be a big relief to get done and he has "penciled" us into his schedule, hopefully before the next big rain. Next is to get Brooks to build a set of stairs and a platform so we can get up there to maintain it.


  1. Tell Brooks to go ahead and just ride the motorcycle up when he does the stairs, you have plenty of tools...

  2. Will be nice to get that issue resolved finally.
