Where did all the water go?

Posted in

Well the pond's not quite as dry as the moon, but it is pretty dry! File this one under the category of "Mistakes Happen". The water department was testing the pump at the west end of the pond. They turned it to "on" as part of the test and and forgot to turn it back to "automatic". The net result is what you see when you walk around the pond right now - missing water!

While it would be theoretically possible to re-fill the pond with municipal water, the board's inclination is not to ask the City to do that for fear of Chlorine in the water having negative ramifications on the fish and other wildlife.
