WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?
Yep, that there is a low drainage catch basin, the result of a very successful fairway topdressing program. Over the years, so much sand has been applied to the fairways that now we are going through and raising things like sprinklers, valve boxes and now catch basins. On Monday the staff dug up and repaired all three of the low catch basins on the 4th fairway.
Note the tree roots in the picture above and keep in mind that this drain is 30 yards from the nearest tree!
Once the drain is exposed, the old box is removed. A new connection is made at the 6" drain pipe and the hole is filled with a sand/soil mixture that will allow for the immediate area to drain better.

The pictures below help describe the process.

the crew began by removing the sod and laying plywood before trenching.
|With the plywood in place, we trenched all the lines in order to install our 1 1/2" pvc pipe.|
