Watery Wednesday: Water level monitors.


Western Springs is very big. It used to supply drinking water to Auckland city until development of factories make the water unsafe for drinking.

This park is very big, and I have not gone to all of it. There is a small hill which is seldom explored. I did that once and since then, I always get my visitors to do it, walking up the slope among the bush is quite a challenge. This time, I thought I could see where our elephant Kashin was buried. I didn't but I saw what was probably her home while she was alive.

I followed the creek to where all the water lowed out to the sea. Along the way, I saw these monitors. The water engineer would be pleased to see them. I have become a convert to his work. In the past, I used to grumble when he took me to places related to his work. Since blogging, I find these are areas of interest. The monitor is to measure how high the level of water flows.

Must be a very big grave for an elephant, he died quite young.
