2023 - HAL Noordam Cruise #2 - Sydney NSW to Vancouver BC - Pago, Pago, American Samoa - 29 of A Ford Meter Box cover in Pago Pago.

As a water system superintendent in the 1890s, founder Edwin Ford faced shortages caused by excessive and unmetered water usage by customers. 

Meters were available, but an accessible outside location was thought to be impractical in Indiana’s cold winters. 

Mr. Ford solved the problem by designing a meter box for in-ground settings.

Word of Ford’s unique approach quickly spread to neighboring towns.  The first meter boxes were made in his basement, but as other utilities learned of his solution, sales increased and a new business was born. 

The small company grew steadily through the years, and in 1911 The Ford Meter Box Company was incorporated in Wabash, Indiana.

After moving to Wabash, Ford Meter Box expanded its product offerings, and in 1916, Ford Meter Box received its first patent for the water meter test bench.  

This first bench was a simple design, but it revolutionized how water meters were tested.  Today, Ford offers a comprehensive line of water meter testing equipment, from basic manual benches to fully computerized models.

From the early 1930s through the 1950s, Ford Meter Box continued to develop new ideas for the waterworks industry.  

In the mid-1950s, Ford introduced the Pack Joint compression fitting, which was a revolutionary way to connect service line tubing without flaring or threading the pipe. 

 Today, Ford offers a large variety of couplings with compression fitting options including the Pack Joint, Grip Joint, Quick Joint, and Ultra-tite.

American Samoa uses imported fossil fuels for almost all of the territory's energy needs, including transportation, drinking and waste water treatment, and most (about 97% in 2020) of its electric power generation.

American Samoa Power Authority (ASPA), a government corporation, owns and operates two generating plants on Tutuila that have about 45 megawatts of combined diesel-fueled capacity.

2023 - HAL Noordam Cruise #2 - Sydney NSW to Vancouver BC - Pago, Pago, American Samoa - 27 of Fatu ma Futi (Flower Pot Rock) is a natural landmark offshore of Tutuila Island near the entrance of Pago Pago Harbour.

Fatu looks like a sea stack, a natural geological formation usually found near rugged coastlines and appearing as vertical stone columns offshore from a main land mass.

The taller the sea stack, the more unstable it is. Eventually the sea stack will topple and make a stump. But it may be that it has survived a wave battering because it is much harder than the surrounding rocks?  This is a volcanic region.

Regardless of its geological origin, Fatu was exposed, over time by wind and water, processes of coastal geomorphology.

It formed when part of a headland was eroded by hydraulic action,  the force of the sea or water crashing against the rock.

A purse seine is a large wall of netting deployed around an entire area or school of fish.

 The seine has floats along the top line (the yellow balls) with a lead line threaded through rings along the bottom. 

Once a school of fish is located, a skiff encircles the school with the net.

The nets in Pago Pago are used to catch Tuna.
