A fun blog I out I of Birmingham Alabama. If you love trivia and history this is right up your alley!
Walking along I noticed this lil’ drain fish. Have you seen any in the ‘Ham? I’m sure there’s more than just this one, but this is the first time I’ve noticed. So do you know #whereintheham?
This particular guy is found at the South East corner of 10th ave south and 16th street situated just in front of the UAB parking deck beside Al’s.
It then got me wondering, what’s the fish there for anyway? As you can tell in the photo this drain “drains to waterways.” This is a storm drain which means it serves an emergency purpose of flushing excess water off the street. In such a situation the large volume of water has to go somewhere right? These drains route the water without filtration directly into our natural water systems. Hence the “no dumping.” Stormdrain runoff is the number one source of water pollution in the world
