Drone footage from my work day...

Recommended Posts

Sometimes being a biologist is kind of fun.  I did some drone flights over this box culvert replacement project in Walla Walla, WA.  The pipe in the photo is the stream diversion pipe.  I had to capture all the fish in the channel and culvert (which the excavator is sitting on top of) and then manage the diversion of the stream into the pipe.  The best part... see that wet soil?  That is wet from a broken sewer pipe.  Yumm!!! 

Anyways, enjoy some cool 360 photos from your local reefer/ drone pilot.

Pretty cool!  Where were you standing?  Hopefully not in the sewer effluent...

if you scoll around you can see me on the sidewalk, next to the blue case.  I spent some time in the sewer effluent.  I opted for the YMCA shower before the 4 hour drive home :)

That’s a cool view.. Curious was the replacement box a 3 sided natural bottom or a 4 sided box?

I am actually not certain. Likely a 4 sided solid box. Although they dont get a lot of precipitation, they can have rain on snow events and they get massive amounts of flow through those systems. This leads to scour which can undermine foundations of open box culverts if not appropriately armored.

 

I love walla walla but man of man, they have really really messed up their natural water conveyance and aquatic habitat systems.

 

All societies pay for errors of the past, but they have really hemmed themselves into a bind out there.

Really cool view. Walla Walla area goes back a ways for my own family and I have a drone that I'm trying to learn how use (a DJI Spark that was a gift). Thanks for sharing this with us.
