WARNING: WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO READ IS EXTREMELY BORING.
The city is currently working on a water system upgrade in my neighborhood. For several
weeks months crews have been digging up the streets around my apartment, wrapping the fire hydrants in plastic, installing strange valves, and generally causing mayhem with all things plumbing. Actually, it hasn’t been too disruptive. Occasionally I’ll spot a leaky pipe spraying water like a fountain or some strange overflow arrangement like the one pictured here. Yesterday they had to shut off my water for 20 minutes.
