Water fountain shutoff dates on the loop

Anyone know when they shutoff the water fountains on the loop?

Re: Water fountain shutoff dates on the loop

Bill, I do not know the answer to this question and I'm pretty sure this has something to do with the fact that I generally don't drink at all while I'm running.

Anybody else?

Re: Water fountain shutoff dates on the loop

I'm pretty sure the fountains shut off at the same time they stop closing King Drive. So, this may be the last weekend.

Re: Water fountain shutoff dates on the loop

My theory is that the city looks at the temperature and schedules the shutoff in advance of the first hard freezes. It seems to happen at a different time each year. I'm very happy they were still running last Saturday!

Re: Water fountain shutoff dates on the loop

As most of us noticed yesterday, the fountains are now turned off. Mostly this is for anyone joining us late or occasionally.

see you on the Drive.
