Fixing The Problem

The San Gabriel River Spreading Grounds is a 3 mile loop around several spreading basins where water form the San Gabriel River is stored for some purpose. On this particular morning i was riding my bike and came to an area where there was some construction going on. One of the channels that delivers the water to these basins overflowed and demolished a part of one trench walls. There was a huge chunk that was simply gone.
City workers were out there with their trucks and machines, getting the problem fixed. There were two workers who appeared to be supervising, while another operated the brightly colored digger, moving dirt around and fixing this trench.
The next day, it looked as if nothing had happened.
Looks like these guys know their stuff.
