CVRD workers great with sewer repair

They worked all that day and found that the line in my backyard was cracked and broken

John Lewis and Neil Ritchfield from the CVRD had to come in the torrential rain two weeks ago on a Saturday to determine what was causing a leak in the sewer line connecting several houses on my block.

They worked all that day and found that the line in my backyard was cracked and broken so they had to come back three more times to dig a trench and replace the line with a backhoe.

We’re talking about my vegetable garden, all planted for the winter, and I didn’t know there was a pipeline underneath. Well, these fine gentlemen took special pains not to dig up my garden any more than necessary and then they asked if I’d like them to use the backhoe for something else. It just so happened that we were planning on moving the cherry tree to the front so they cheerfully dug a real nice big root ball around the tree and planted it squarely at just the right depth in a three-foot deep hole.

Thanks guys.
