12/29/2007 Walter Pickel 2' The hole is no longer gated but the no mount entrance is choked. The flow is almost not detectable from the body-sized entrance tube but the water is clear and warm. We spent about an hour trying to clean it out to no avail; some interesting items were pulled out. Although there is always hope, this system does not seem to want to go -- at least not for a human.
