Whew -- look at the size of that thing! The driver of this tractor drove over to the hole and transferred the segment of the pipe to the track hoe by having workers throw a lasso around the pipe to secure it. Then the track hoe gently laid down the pipe segment into the hole they worked on yesterday. To watch a video of the process, view the video below: 

Once the track hoe laid it down, the workers scurried into the hole and connected it to the previous segment securely.

This is just the start of the process! This pipe is going to be a big one, so the whole process of putting in the retention pipe and working on the drywells will take a few weeks.
