Then I took a quick walk on the Delaware and Raritan Canal:
Now besides being a Pharmacist, I also am involved in my family business of land development and home construction started by my dad almost 60 years ago. Since he has retired, it was my brother and I for 15 years, and now on my own.
Took the Admiral to the jobsite today to show him the pipes and structures that were delivered today for a massive underground storm water detention system.
This system will consist of 3 foot wide perforated pipes, 12 roes of them, 100 feet long!! Almost the size of an NBA basketball court!!This system of pipes will be wrapped in heavy duty filter fabric, surrounded by 3 feet of stone all around, and encased in more filter fabric. All this will be attached to a filtration system, called a "jellyfish" to catch any particles that might slip through these pipe.
All this for a small 5 lot sub division!!

If you guys are interested, I can post pictures of the system as it is being built. Snow storm might slow it down a bit.
Again thanks for looking
