How is it that Indians could live with this geyser forever without ruining it?

Little doubt a university engineering dept could design equipment to repair it.

Put a fence it to protect it.

People do such ignorant things at times.

"The only geyser in North America that operates on cold water . . ." Isn't Soda Springs, Idaho also in North America? They have a WHOLE city named for the cold water geyser right smack in the middle of town.

Did you read the article? The geyser is man made in the first place. I really doubt that the indians, except those driving cars ever saw this.

American Fork, UT

I don't doubt that people have thrown stuff in it, Yellowstone has suffered the same problem. At one time they had to ban washing detergent as people would take it from the hotels to dump in the geysers hoping to spark a reaction.

When I shake up a Coke, then open it right away, it makes a great geyser, but then it fizzles down. Why does anyone expect this man-made soda fountain to operate differently? It is little more than a symbolic relic of all things cast off from unrestrained oil exploration anyway. Might just as well memorialize exhausted oil dericks or discarded pipelines or tailings piles. Let it die, clean up the trash, and and go find someplace more interesting.

Funny... people are calling this and environmental wonder when it was made by man. Oh, wait, man is part of the environment? It is all in ones perception of reality.

Evanston, WY

Don't these people know anything, it isn't rocks that triggered the reaction, it was Mentos.

Sorry, couldn't resist :)

Layton, UT

The complaint of how the public treats the outdoors, no matter the geyser's origin, is a valid critique. I think there's a human tendency to want to break the natural world, or leave an indelible mark upon the immortal rocks. Our vanity and pride often destroys the object we seek to tie ourselves to...
