Awesome first geohash! I think your weird tank things are evaporation pans. OtherJack 03:10, 5 May 2012 (EDT)

Thanks, I had a great time on the hash! Also, thanks for the info about the evaporation pans - I agree that it looks like that's what the mysterious pools were. Of course, one of them was overflowing and the other one was empty, so I don't think whoever put them there is getting very good measurements from them! Squenes 00:40, 6 May 2012 (MDT)
Maybe the overflowing one had just been filled up? OtherJack 13:50, 6 May 2012 (EDT)
Yeah, the overflowing one must have recently been filled, but if they measure the evaporation amount from the top of the tank, their reading will miss the amount of evaporation it took to drop the water level from its overflowing state to the top of the tank. Oh well, hopefully whoever the tanks belong to knows to take this sort of thing into account. Squenes 16:13, 6 May 2012 (MDT)
