We have successfully pumped water up the cliffs and into the water tank! The retained water (approximately 8 in high) was used to clean the inside of the tank and then was drained. Meanwhile, we checked the line for failure points and potential problem areas and are working to reinforce them.
During, and possibly because of, the pumping, we may have fried a couple capacitors in the inverter. We need to take it apart and may need to replace some of the control boards. This means we then needed to take a few days and refocus from the pipes to the solar station in order to figure out how to maintain the energy required to start pumping again. The goal is to start pumping water through the pipes again tomorrow (Thursday, April 24) and continue pumping over the next few days until the water reaches the level of the tank's outlet pipe and slowly fills the pipes. We will then check the outflow pipes for failure points and continue connecting pipes along the backbone trench.
So far pipe was laid between the station and the water tank, and from the church-under-construction to past the handicap center. We back-filled the trenches where the pipes have already been tested and will continue back-filling as each section passes testing.
