Crews continue to lay additional sections of water pipe to bring water from the Blue Ridge Reservoir to Payson.
Salvador Nava sets pipe in the bottom of a trench along Tyler Parkway.
A machine fuses two sections of the high-strength plastic pipe. This pipe will deliver reservoir water to the country clubs for irrigation and to the site of the proposed university campus.
