Two Concrete Trucks Fill a Trench for a Botched Water Main Valve Repair

A water main in front of my house failed and construction began to replace ther main and add a new valve and re-connect our house to the municipal water supply. At this phase of the construction, two concrete trucks were brought in to fill the ditch with a slurry mixture (CLSM). It's not concrete, rather it's an engineered slurry that doesn't require packing like dirt and allows for the asphalt to be quickly laid without risk of the road developing a dip. They had some problems getting the valve access port to the correct level.
