Here’s a pic I shot on the Metro when preparing for ‘Passenger Side’. The ‘end of the lake’ was supported by rubber inflated tubes, basically. Too bad. Pretty lake for a desert. Video shows it best. About 3/4 of the billion gallons of water flowed away. No one was hurt, fortunately.
Actually, it was pretty cool having a lake nearby, even if you couldn’t swim in it. Shoulda known that a rubber dam wouldn’t last in the Arizona sun. On the bright side, I now have something to shoot for “That’s just filthy” (I mean, besides the caterpillar taking a poop, that is).
Given that they were going to start replacing the ‘balloons’ TODAY (and at great costs), and yet last night at 10pm it bursts, so now the INSURANCE company will have to cover most of the costs…I wouldn’t be too quick to eliminate the conspiracy theories.
Many of us were saying “You’re gonna WHAT?!?” when we heard they were planning on making a giant rubber dam in the middle of the desert to make what they call a “lake” but is really a concrete-lined “Town Canal.”
The whole thing is simply redonkulous.
