    Default What is this pipe?!

    Hello All, Recently closed on a new construction home where the previous home was very old, maybe a late 1800's house in a historic district.
    I recently noticed on the edge of the work boundary a Metal Pipe sticking out of the ground. This location is quite far away from the old house, and i dont believe there was any structure out here, just a field. Anyone know any way to confirm if this pipe is a well, or oil tank, or water line that is not on my meeter?
    Do you guys think Dig Save be able to give me any insights?

    Trace the pipe to whatever it goes. May involve digging.

    Try to take that cap off of the elbow, just for fun. (Be prepared to break something in the process...)
