Don't Lick Your Lips

The Chick Hill Pollution Control Facility in Rangeley has a novel way of storing its not-quite-clean wastewater over the winter.
It's sort of the golden rule of winter on top of Chick Hill:

Don't lick your lips.

Using ski resort-worthy guns, the treatment plant here makes snow out of millions of gallons of treated - but not disinfected - wastewater. The wind up here blows something fierce. You go outside and lick your lips, it's probably going to be salty, warns Superintendent Jerome "Frenchie" Guevremont. Don't put too much thought into why.

Just don't lick your lips. [Source]
