hot light, krispy kreme
Learned about the “hot light” in Raleigh, NC. Krispy Kreme fires up a “hot now” neon light when they birth a new batch of their glazed doughnuts. Natch, they have an app.

making a hole

Filed under: neighborhood,stinky — WmX @ 08:51

Please note that a blast at the Moores Creek Advanced Wastewater Treatment Facility on Moores Creek Lane
has been scheduled for Wednesday, October 1, 2014. A single blast is anticipated mid-day.
Several seismographs will be set up in the Woolen Mills neighborhood to gather additional vibration data.
We appreciate your cooperation to adhere to all signage and personnel regarding blasting for your SAFETY!–RWSA

Work continues at the former MCWWTP, digging a hole which will eventually house the wet well, the drop off point
for the Rivanna Interceptor, the pipe that catches the sewage from 42 square miles of Charlottesville and Albemarle.
This is a big hole being excavated in solid rock.
At some point a TBM (tunnel boring machine) will be introduced to this hole and it will bore its way to Riverview Park
allowing the installation of a gravity flow line, replacing the current force main from Riverview to the sewage plant.

Also in the works, Monticello, home of Th. Jefferson, is in the process of hooking up its sewage to the MCAWTF
(MCAWTF = MCWWTP = Moores Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant = sewage plant) Monticello is located about 3350 feet
from where the blasting is going on.

We know that water runs downhill. I wonder if the smell will waft uphill? The stink plume certainly wafts laterally,
To sample, drive from the east into Charlottesville on Interstate 64 with a window cracked in the morning…
