|Last week whilst watering I spied a possible WaterCorp chap working with the infrastructure that I had previously identified from their plans as a water testing point. ‘Aha’ I thought ‘this may be a man who knows about on the ground water pipe connections’. And indeed it was so! I had a nice chat with this fellow. He was indeed undertaking water testing. And he knew about mains pipes and connections as he used to work in that area. He explained where the mains went and a little about the connection we would have and reassured me that taking a pipe across the creek to our site would be ‘no problem’. Well that was happy news.|
|And this morning whilst watering I was approached by a shire man who arrived with a large mowing machine. He was interested in what we were up to on site and happy to help. We compared bollard keys and he told me the code of his. I later went to the shire and swapped our non-operational key for one that works – that problem fixed. Also, as he didn’t have much work on at the moment he was happy to whipper-snip around some of our native plantings before completing the mowing of the bit of the paddock that he’d chickened out of last visit. I also asked about getting some more shire mulch and he seemed to think that was no problem and set that in motion. So perhaps another large mulch pile will appear sometime.
In the meantime thanks to Sonia and Stan the Man for collecting and delivering some EMRC mulch for us to get on with some mulching.
