One Large Pipe

"Hi Danny!
      I can't believe that you are going to be 6 years old in a matter of days!  You are almost as big as that reinforced concrete pipe!  And that one's 7' in diameter!  Speaking of RCP, see the notch inside of it?  That's so that it can be fit into another pipe so they can construct a long segment.  Flowing full, that pipe could handle 850 cubic feet per second. That's a lot of water.  We're talking 382k gallons.  If I had a penny for each gallon, I'd be rich!
