SSRT Pavilion Water Line Install

The trail has been planning to install a frost free water spigot near the pavilion and also near the restrooms at Gillentown Trailhead. Then, we could have the use of water for our events. The plan is to have the water turned on in the Spring and off in the fall. Both spigots will have locks installed to prevent over running of water and mostly used for events. On Monday, March 20,2017 volunteers showed up to help get the 1000ft. of line installed. Fred Lingle ran backhoe, Gary Mayes volunteered his backhoe and services to handle some of the hard digging areas with large rocks etc. Harry Moore move a lot of snow throughout the parking lot to help it melt. Gary Halsnick, Ron Fye, Larry Lingle, Marlin Luse and Larry Mayes helped install the spigots and lay the pipe in the ditch. The pipe was completely installed by end of day Wednesday, March 22. Now, we are waiting for the Mountaintop Regional Water Company to tie the pipe into their main water line. Many thanks to all who worked so hard to accomplish this project.
