Message of the Day – In Your Face

More water.

Not squirting at my son protected by a car window this time.

Right in your face.

And, in my car, had I driven just a bit closer.

You’ve seen the

HYDRANT
FLUSHING
THIS WEEK

signs, if you have driven around Crystal Lake recently.

But, do you know why the city public works department flushes them?

Take a look at the color of the water right after the flushing begins in the picture on the left.

All you probably see while flushing is occurring is the white water on the right after the rust or whatever is already in the street.

Quite a bit of gunk apparently gets flushed out of the water supply system.

All photos can be enlarged by clicking on them. These were taken near Auto Zone in front of Joseph’s Market Place.
