On black friday, they're power-washing the building with just water, and they're not using chemicals. They're putting it up so in todays I'M TRIGGERED environ, nobody freaks out and calls/emails building management to complain.

Wrong! The water comes from the Walter Sullivan Water Treatment Plant. Leaving the plant it is pumped up to the Payson Park Reservoir, a completely closed facility, and flows by gravity to the buildings in Cambridge.

Anyone know why the Cambridge reservoir (Waltham) water level is so low?

The MWRA has been doing "drawdowns" at several reservoirs (such as Chestnut Hill) for invasive plant control. http://www.mwra.com/01news/2015/2015drawdown-chestnuthill.html

Cambridge may be doing a drawdown for similar reasons.

Is the rinse water organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, fair-trade, free-range, and grass-fed??
