Mystery Stream


There is always a stream of water running through the cul-de-sac behind our house. And it’s origins is a complete mystery. It seems to come from the property lines of two of the houses. It doesn’t appear on anyone’s water bill and the water district has come out and checked the lines repeatedly. I have a picture, but it’s difficult to see because the best visibility of it is at night. It reflects the street light behind our house.

The point is, it’s a lot of water. It is an endlessly ceasing flow of water that runs through 2 yards, before flowing onto the street.

I have concerns. If it’s a natural spring is it eroding the foundations of my neighbors’ houses? Will I one day be roused from sleep or work by an incredible noise as their walls give out due to the constant flow of water?

All we know for sure is that the water comes from the ground. And according to one of the neighbors it’s been flowing for 3 or 4 years.
