some tweets & pics from yesterday's DC Water 1st Street Tunnel Hard Hat Tour

For those who did not get an opportunity to attend one of the three Saturday, 10-24-2015, DC Water 1st Street Tunnel Hard Hat Tours -- you don't know what you missed!

Thanks to DC Water and Skanska!

Here are some tweets and pics:

For tour, we wore hard hats, muck boots, yellow vests.We did not look like Parisian tourists 




Tracks-used to cart muck out of tunnel.Tracks were used to build original cells & ties were sold after 


There is no miner's canary in the tunnel, but the air duct is canary yellow. 

  
Safety First!!!



Miners have to eat, I guess. There's a porta potty, too. All the comforts of home.
