An Enormous Green Blob Just Bubbled Out of a Storm Drain in Utah

Residents of Bluffdale, Utah received quite a shock yesterday when an enormous blob of pale green foam sprung forth, seemingly out of nowhere, from a roadside irrigation gate.

If you love heavy equipment, the place to hang out is downtown at night. That’s when most of the action happens in downtown’s largest street project in two decades. Up for retooling are 100-year-old sewer lines, the street-level electric system and tree irrigation. The street also gets spiffed up with an overlay of fresh asphalt.
