On a visit to the Glue Pot Pub one afternoon this week, I noticed a strange sight down in the deep hole where a future entrance to the Confederation LRT’s Lyon station will be: Water. And lots of it.

Stacks of lumber and other construction material appeared to be floating, while a single worker — standing on a makeshift raft made from a large piece of plywood — used a huge hose to suck the water up to a hydrovac truck parked above on street level.
