Summary of general operations: We cemented the two signs on Cow Dung Road into the ground so they would not blow over anymore. We attempted to replace the toilet in the Hab but had very little time to complete the work and the bolts that secure the toilet to the floor were stuck and we did not have time to unstick them before the crew asked if they could just use the broken one until the end of their rotation. We removed the old diesel overflow berm and releveled the area.
Summary of Outpost operations: Shed was cleaned and organized. Outflow on the water tank was replaced as it had been stripped. Intern Trailer was leveled. Greywater tank control appears to be failing on the intern trailer and may need to be replaced.
