Tom and Ronnie did a fantastic job getting the 2000 ft of pipe laid for the water.  The first backhoe was too small to dig very deep, so they sent it back and got a bigger one.  They worked extremely hard, long days,  up and down the hill, through huge and small rock in just a week. So we now have city water installed. The first well we had dug came out salty, the second came out dry, so this was our last option or spend the rest of our days picking up drinking water at the local Wally World, not something I prefer to do.

Finishing touches down by the containers.
 These are some of the huge boulders they had to dig up all along the way.
This is the bottom of the hill that Tom and Ronnie had to dig down into in order to get the pipe laid at a certain depth to prevent freezing. I believe they went 18 inches down.
