Resistance is futile

On the project that I am working on we have to divert a big river.
The above pic's are of the diversion channel. The DC is 8 km (5.3 miles) long, 50 m wide and 3 meters deep.
That makes this anthill more than 30 ft tall.
This is also typical of a construction crew chasing production and leaving the tough bits for later.
guess they are waiting on a truck load of government regulated ant-eaters to clear that area.

I've heard those things can be hard as concrete. What'll you do? Dynomite it, leave it for the new river to desolve it, bulldoze it again?

KK: Hi K-nine. Yes the are hard but with todays equipment like a D9 or a 80 ton excavator they stand no chance. The one pictured was gone the next day.
Removing them with a pick and spade is another thing.
