Coffee Creek Water System

The water system at Coffee Creek consists of 2 gravity based systems. The indoor water comes from a spring fed hose snaking down from the hill above Aunt Mollie's cabin. The second comes from a ditch that starts at a creek about a mile up the hill and flows down to irrigate Aunt Mollie's garden, grass, and fields.

About every couple of weeks Aunt Mollie must follow the ditch to be sure to clear out any debris that might find its way into the ditch. One day Aunt Mollie's older brother Jack (age 87) came over and he hiked with us to the head of the ditch at the creek about a mile away. Below are pictures of our trip.

Where the ditch separates from the main creek.
