You might recall the story from a month or so back about how Arab Water Works had a contractor raising its intake near the Warrenton causeway bridge.
The intake was being raised 11 feet off the bottom of the lake to keep silt and mud out of the intake to get fresher raw water coming into the system.
The last piece of the puzzle was recently put into place.
Giant anchors weighing thousands of pounds each were placed around the intake and cabled to it to ensure that it says in place. The big anchors were offloaded with a crane, set in a workboat and moved into a place.
It took better than a week to get everything in place due to some weather delays.
The support team pumps warm water into the divers’ suits, but they still get cold.
