    This is the POC area for a 3-year-old building and irrigation system around that area. What's wrong with this picture?

    Answers:
    - It's part of a school system.
    - Has no backflow device.
    - Has no shut off valve.
    - And with the field next to it, the valve box has probably been backfilled by gophers.
