Summary: A 30' bottomless water trough to replace several small portable troughs located next to an existing reservoir would be constructed. In the past, water was pumped from the well into the reservoir. However, the reservoir's holding capacity was unreliable, so temporary troughs were utilized this past year. In addition a solar tower to power the water pump for the well would be installed. Water would be pumped from an existing well at the site into the trough. A small trench about 15 feet long would be dug in order to place a water pipe from the well to the trough.
