Electrical and Water Connections
The main water pipe and 2 conduits (one electrical, 8 guage wire and one ethernet wire) runs down the middle of the driveway, and we route the water to a new shut-off that is outside of Teen dome (and was buried so a truck won't run over it).
Layout of toliet and shower domes.
This is where we cut into the water lines from the Bodega to head into the Teen Dome. This is close to the edge of the northern driveway The 2 orange mangera are carrying electricity and data (Cat 5 and telephone cables) to the bathroom.
water line to right is from Bodega, left line goes into dome (where it ends at sink) and back to the driveway where it contunes on to the bathroom and other domes.
Shut-off valve for all water from Bodega to Teen and other domes. The water comes from a main line down the center iofthe driveway, to the teen dome, then piped to the outide bathroom. It was been buried to avoid trouble with surface traffic.

We spent hours digging trenches trying to find the septic, or the septic conenction we had built in 2014 for RVs parked in front of our property. No luck.
Here is where we had the septic connection in 2008:
