Water Tank

Quite often the water is off in the Ladybrand area.  Our mission school currently has 30+ students which has some unpleasant implications when there is no water!  For some time I have been working on making a back-up source of water a reality. First we had to move a small section of the fence and then weld in another piece.  After that we cemented four poles in the ground.  A friend of the school welded the platform for the tank and last week we got it all in place and "strapped" down.  We still need to brace the poles and do the plumbing.

Unwelcome Visitor
