The aim of the exercise was to understand the capability of the fire services High Volume pump in removing water from the flooded section of Langstroth cave.
It requires a large coordinated effort including diverting water on the surface and we thank
DRS Scaffolding for the scaffold sheeting it worked very well.
Even on a vey wet day we managed to beat the flow and begin lowering the water level with additional pumping capacity available.
Time however was against us and we had to begin packing away the huge amount of gear before we could break on through to the other side.
Thanks to everyone who turned up to assist
