Shovel brigade reports minimal progress
TOMBSTONE — Temporary repairs were made at Gardner Spring on the Tombstone water line, City Clerk George Barnes reported.
The Shovel Brigade organized earlier this month has hopes the repair will hold up during the upcoming summer storms, Barnes said.
Work involved on Friday and Saturday, June 8-9, redirected and lifted the waterline out of the flow path. There was also construction of a diversion to protect the line as much as possible. Barnes said 60 people did the physical work, which involved moving large rocks and debris, along with pick and shovel work.
