A series of cranes hold sections of a 3,000-foot sewer pipe in slings along Niagara Street in James Bay on Tuesday. The pipe was being pulled inch by inch from the site of the wastewater treatment plant at McCaulay Point in Esquimalt, through an underwater tunnel in Victoria Harbour, with the help of the cranes and other heavy equipment. It will eventually be connected to another pipe that will be buried along Dallas Road, coming from the expanded Clover Point pump station. Don Descoteau/Victoria News
