For anyone planning on traveling the 14 freeway. The 14 is currently being closed from the NB5 on the south end to Ave M in Palmdale on the north end. The Sand Fire has gotten very ugly in the Acton area.

Why are the posts tagged July 25th when today is the 24 th?

So, it is grey water then?

Jul 24 : 12:10pm
Yes, it is the treated water from the sewage treatment facility. There is that hillside that is somewhat visible from the 330, but also a pipeline that drops down into the next drainage to the east and that area has a much larger rainbird setup.

Thanks for the information. We've been full-time on the mountain for sixteen years and never saw it before...

Also for anyone interested Sand Fire just lost air support in one division due to use of a drone.

I was going to say it is too low for SV. It is in Fredalba. Seen it many times.

I know that it is the Running Springs sewage treatment plant, just below Smiley Park/Fredalba. I always figured it's just them getting rid of treated water.

They could be working on a new snowmaking system, I know snow valley pulled out all their air/waters years back and went with fan guns. Maybe they're putting them back in and testing... seems a little more logical.

Massive. The system looks large from miles away.

That's bizarre. Maybe they're afraid of a fire and watering things down, still a waste of water...

Jul 24 : 11:32am
From below, it looked like it could have been in the area of Snow Valley so I thought it might have been their snowmaking equipment. Not sure why...

Sprinklers were on again this morning, too!
