Jim Lewis is right! This was a huge, and I mean huge explosion of water. The park has greatly benefited and so did Peet's! Thanks Todd Temple for the great shot!

Thanks Peet's Coffee Drinker. I saw many people taking shots on their phones. It would be interesting to see more shots. Here is a link to some video of the event.

It would have been interesting to see video and photos of this same hydrant before last year's upgrade to the pipeline in University Drive. We replaced a 6" cast iron pipe with a new 12" pipeline that is connected to our transmission grid.
