1 Lake Drainage

Over the last few years, the wet spot that is currently in the middle of the first fairway on 1 lake has tripled in size.  This past week we installed approximately 800 ft of drainage pipe to remedy the situation.

About an hour after the drain lines were cut in, we had water coming up from the bottom of the trenches which helps explain why the area never dried out.  The video posted below shows water trickling out of the line.  While this area may remain wet for this rain season, it should be much less in future years.  That is of course if the glaciers don't melt.  These aren't 100 year drain lines!
