Dick - that's amazing.

I know that in California they built ditches that ran for many miles to deliver water under a hundred feet of head or more to the big hydraulic mines in the 1800s. These things would cost more than a hundred thousand dollars to construct - that was back in the day when $100,000 was significant money.
