Unfortunately I did not take any photos of this setup.
Yesterday while performing an inspection I noted the presence of a ground rod at the exterior. When I made my way to the basement and began my inspection on the main service equipment I noticed there was no ground wire attached. However I did see a ground connected the the whole house plumbing just a couple feet away from the panel.
It appeared as though someone attached the ground wire to the plumbing, ran it outside, then attached it directly to the ground rod. They even ran a jumper around the meter. (8\)
