An industrial strength slurpee!
Lisl: Dredging water out of the Thames & Severn Canal, Ray
Wow! There seems to be a giant octopus on top of his truck!
Lisl: Pipeage and wireage etc, Elizabeth
That is a nice composition. Is that a canal being worked on?
Lisl: It is, Michael - work on the huge task of restoring the Thames & Severn Canal to re-open navigation between these two great Rivers. It was closed in 1933.

Whatever he's pumping in/out is steaming hot..
Lisl: And I don't understand why.......
Interesting and original subject
Lisl: Always good stuff on Canals, whether restored or not, Marie
Cette photo est vraiment bien vue !

Looks like he's doing something important. I wonder what is being pumped out? Well, I assuming that something is being pumped out and not pumped in.
Lisl: Pumping out water and sludge from the disused Thames & Severn Canal, Alan
It's a dirty job but somebody has to do it
Lisl: A lot of the canal workers are volunteers, but I guess this one wasn't

Is he pumping concrete?
Lisl: I thought he was pumping OUT, but he may be pumping IN
I hope they are pumping in water now pumping out something.
Lisl: I think they are pumping out sludge, Mary

Looks a bit lonely. I wonder where the others are ! An unusual scene well captured Lisl.
Lisl: I don't recall any others, Hugh
Grease removal?
Lisl: Sludge and silt more like, Larry
I suspect they've got a big job on their hands if they are working on an old canal.
Lisl: Years of work and millions of pounds, Brian

He seems to have everything under control smile
Lisl: He certainly seemed to know his business, Cherie
En plein travail de vidange ou de pompage...comment savoir ?
Lisl: I don't remember clearly, but I think it as pumping out from the bed of the canal
Are they emptying or filling? Well whatever they are doing, I do not envy them smile
Lisl: I think they are clearing the sludge out of a disused canal, claudio
