Out and about again today on Hafod y Llan and the Snowdon hydro. Big rain yesterday but today was nice and calm. Good to see some water around the weir following all the dry weather on Snowdon. I was roped into doing some manual labour by John. (how very dare he!). We were finishing slate detailing on the weir in order to start fitting the coanda screen.
The weir is now taking shape and the detailing is ready. everything from the right seed mix for re-colonising the site around the weir through to the oak sleepers to cover the for-bay tank. Everybody is really pleased with the way the weir is looking. Interesting to see the amount the pipe has shifted under the weeks of direct sunlight. The rain and recent weather has moved it back. Once we cover the final sections then no more problems
The turbine building keeps growing further out of the ground. The cage gabions are looking good. These are the new retaining walls behind the building to keep back the earth bank. The stone fill for the gabions has come from the hole we dug for the building. Good to recycle!
