City of Modesto wastewater collection system operators Alex Ortega and Vicente Loya spent part of Wednesday afternoon pumping up the "lake" that formed at the intersection of Emerald and Maze following a night of steady rain. Draining the pond outside Franklin Elementary School required several trips to empty their truck's 2,400 gallon tank. Photographed on Wednesday.
