Oh My 06880 — Photo Challenge #77

Bob Weingarten has driven up and down North Avenue for over 10 years. But until recently — when Aquarion started work on the water tanks opposite Staples High School — he’d never noticed them. To be fair, they’re hidden behind tall evergreens.

But Rebecca Wolin, Edward Bloch, Matt Murray, Carl Volckmann, Jane Sherman and Susan Huppi sure did. That’s how they nailed last week’s photo challenge.

The question remains, though: What exactly do those tanks do? If you know, click “Comments” below. (Click here for last week’s photo challenge, and all the guesses.)

Lynn U. Miller provides this week’s challenge. If you think you’ve seen this image, click “Comments.” HINT: It’s somewhere in Westport — not Amsterdam.

    The water tank and pumping station on North Avenue (opposite the entrance to Staples HS) was installed by the Bridgeport Hydraulic Company in the 1950s to bolster their water-distribution system, particularly to to increase the water pressure in their distribution pipes, and to ensure adequate flow even during peak demand (think the sudden simultaneous demand for water to flush toilets at the start of Superbowl half-time, for example). We were able to disconnect an auxiliary pump and storage tank in our basement on Burr Farms Road when the North Avenue pumping and storage station went on-line.

    DHL Dropbox on riverside Ave near sunny days

  5. Correct: the DHL dropbox on Riverside Avenue, near Sunny Daes. John, it’s a bit in from the Post Road — but you guys are very observant!
