Bringing Sidney fresh water


Bruce Lavey, of Lancaster, oversees a vac Wednesday, Oct. 26, which sucks out water which is being used to run a drill that is boring a hole through solid rock under the Big 4 Bridge. The water is forced through at high pressure to turn the drill head and it also acts as a lubricant. The water is then put through filters and used again to power the drill. Progressively larger drill heads are used to enlarge the hole until it is wide enough for the pipes that will be installed to carry water to Sidney from the city’s newly purchased well field.
