Clearly it's a warning sign

Go deeper - warning about what exactly?

If they're not a physical hazard I can only think of flooding if there's sudden heavy rainfall and the drains can't cope with the amount of water.

Hmm........ interesting.......

What is the meaning of the word obniżone?

OK, are these drain inlets set lower in the ground than normal? Vehicles need to drive more slowly?

Yes, creating hazard to vehicles. Excellent!!!! :):):)

Remember, drop those black thoughts and never give up. :):):)

"Wciąż bardziej obcy" video was made in 1983. Borysewicz was 27 back then.

Yes, Borysewicz, guitar virtuoso.

Where is it and why are they doing it???
Hint - for a very practical reason.

They pour "Ustronianka" water.

Sorry, not Ustronianka.
Let`s skip the name for a while. What for??

Is it in Chełm? There was a plan to bottle and sell the excess tap water produced there to help combat climate change/drought issues.
OP pawian 223 | 24,583
25 Jul 2023 #1,637
Sorry, not Chełm. And the reason to bottle that water from the spring has a more practical nature - it excludes drinking, at least not in such amounts as you can see in the photos.

Looking at the plaque... maybe this is a Licheń type place? That is did some kind of special religous event take place there and so people collect and/or sell the water?
OP pawian 223 | 24,583
25 Jul 2023 #1,639
maybe this is a Licheń type place?

Clever answer but no. Although it might sound quite plausible - collect holy water for the whole year. :):):)

Hint - this spring with special water is located in a spa resort town or city. Alien mentioned Ustroń but it wasn`t. It is an unusual spa resort which most people visit for different reasons than health problems.

Ciechocinek? lol

Sorry, no, most people come there for health reasons so it doesn`t suit.
Hint - it is in the north.

Kołobrzeg?

Hint - for a very practical reason.

If this is that spring in Kołobrzeg then this water is brine, so maybe they're going to use it to make pickled foods?

Ciechocinek?

Spent a pleasant couple of weeks there years ago (partly work related...)

Loved the tężnie and the outdoor swimming pool (which I take it no longer exists).

Not the most... exciting place but overall a nice time.

spring in Kołobrzeg water is brine, to make pickled foods

Yes. Wholesale water collection for pickling cucumbers.
Alien 21 | 5,195

pickling cucumbers

Is this water already salty or does it have other properties that make it predisposed to flooding cucumbers.

Yes, it is coz Paulina wrote: brine.
