Here’s a couple pictures of the dam that Temple is building at Lasipis, near Ngurunit. 

The first picture shows a good overview of the site.  The dam wall is going where the men are standing, arcing around the top of the natural wall there, about 105 feet long, and about 4 feet high at the highest.  At the far end, another wall is being built, as a screen against dirt and rock getting into the pool, but with a spill-way to allow water from the southern catchment area to fill the pool.

The second picture is Temple Knowles on the right and Jim Teasdale on the left. I flew Jim over to Ngurunit for the day to consult with Temple on aspects of the project. Right there he’s talking about fencing the whole area around the pool, particularly the upper catchment area to keep kids from thinking they can jump into the pool.  At the top right of the picture you’ll see a mountain with sheer sides and a rounded top. Ngurunit is just to the left of that mountain, about 15 miles away.

And the third picture:  I got stuck in the sand at Ngurunit that day as we were leaving.  We dug out, and then pulled the airplane onto firmer ground, and off we went.  That’s Jade Teasdale there inspecting the problem, and in the background, Temple and crew charging to the rescue, huge dust cloud behind.
