I'm thinking there's a ladder similar to a pool. They don't want recreational swimmers but they have to expect to go in for maintenance.

Unless she was covered in diesel oil or black plague there is no rational reason to drain and sanitize the tank. Convincing people of that would take forever and be futile so they will drain and sanitize the tank.

I hope she gets the water bill.

I read it. But King makes even reading and writing (Misery) creepy and harmful. At some point you have to decide not to take entertainment advice from him.

It's a lot of water to water down the contamination (sue me, I'm working toward another point), but I'm thinking they do tests of some sort that they'd notice something. Maybe after weeks of people passing around their water: "Does this taste off to you?"

They would have found out when the water came out the taps black and "tasting funny" like happened with the woman who did this in a hotel water tank.

But this larger so it may have went unnoticed.  <Shrug>

That wasted all of that water for a lil bit of Puzzy, Zbutt juices & w/a tad of Toe Jam in the tank??? When they coulda Trucked to a Fire Ravaged area to fight a fire with....!!!!!

Boyz oh Boyz what a W A S T F U L bunch of folkz!

Right now I'm in a Drought Zone & my well has gone dry twice this year. I also have a shared well w/3 other neighbors, we end up buying water that is trucked up to my property. My neighbors expect me to pay my fair share of which I'm refusing to do so now. Mainly because the water I get comes straight outta the ground & NEVER goes into the holding tanks. The others are wasting the water by washing their cars/boats, hot tubs & of course their grass is way greener than mine will ever be...!!!!!!

Whatz that ole saying about "You'll Never Miss it Till your ole Well Runs Dry"?????

The quote by Benjamin Franklin, "When the well's dry, we know the worth of water," seems especially apropos. Despite us knowing the benefits of a balanced life, our society has created catalysts to unbalance our life.

I'm a History NUT & I never thought to put that to my situation of today.......I've always thought of it as in someone Dying, Moving away or a Betrayal of a so called Friend........

True. This probably happens often enough in Alabama to require a law.

Are you referring to the Hotel Cecil documentary, with the missing girl from Canada?

The girl went missing and wound up in one of the water tanks. Some patrons who stayed while the girl was missing were interviewed and complained that the water was turning black and tasted funny.

Few things turn my stomach, but for some reason, that really did.

"Employees with the wastewater department drained the tank overnight so it could be sanitized."

Hey, are you trying to put the wastewater employees out of a job?
Or maybe it wasn't a good idea to have a wastewater department as well as a water conservation department.

What waste? It's not going into a black hole. You'll be drinking molecules of it forever. Just like Hitler, Jesus, and everyone born on good ol planet Earth before you.
 
2021-08-08 9:47:35 PM  
So the city's water is stored in a large, open container accessible to the public? And they don't already have a sanitation process in effect for the water?

I'll have the bottled water, thanks.

The waste would be in the loss of whatever processing the water had gone through up to that point to make it potable, plus the energy used to pump it into the tank.  All of that will have to be done again to refill the tank.

The article explicitly mentions a hatch was left unlocked by a cleaning crew.
