    Default Whats That Smell?

    This was our excitment for the shift yesterday. For thoese who dont know, reclaimed water is treatd sewage water that they use around here for lawns. And yes, it smells like sh*t. Lucky for me, I was on the squad and we didnt go.

    BTW, this tank holds 5 million gallons.


    Water tank overflows

    I know a couple of firehouses that use the opportunity to do a protein foam drill as a way of fertlizing their lawn... while it does reek to high heaven, their grass is so green

    We did that once when we had to empty the foam tank. Wow did that grass grow like hell!
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.
