Fellow citizens! Please join Bernalwood in celebrating the installation of our newest manhole!
Doesn’t that sound kind of smutty? Right? But this is straight-up: Yesterday workers completed the fabrication of a new manhole as part of the sewer reconstruction project taking place on Precita Avenue.
New infrastructure is innately sexy, of course. But for those who slept through your civil engineering classes, the essential function of Bernal’s new manhole is to serve as a junction for the sewer pipes that run east from Precita and north down Shotwell.
Basically, it all works pretty much the way Richard Scarry sketched it out:
And at the end of the day, we had a finished result:
Nice work! Now, friends and neighbors, here’s to 100+ years of trouble-free drainage. (Fingers crossed.)
