You get the point. I am thinking that it was about time that the new water pipes were installed. These look very “leaky”, to say the least. But, just to let you know, this is an old section of Boise. Formerly called the Fairview Section it was developed in the early 1900’s. Our house is in this neighborhood – we have real water pipes – and it was built in 1905. Our house, 1 block north of this construction, is located on the Paulson Tract. Anyway, here are a few more photos of the pipes. Enjoy! Left-Click to see the photos enlarged.
