    I am not sure if it's a swimming pool, but a reservoir in the middle of nowhere is weird. Cool find!

    I can't imagine it's a swimming pool. Using the ruler tool in Google Earth, it measures something like 230x140 meters. That would be a MASSIVE pool. An olympic-sized swimming pool, by comparison, it about 50x25 meters.

    I agree that it must be a reservoir of some kind. Be sure to add it to the site if you haven't already.

    There is a pipeline going from here to a Syrian installation about 10 miles north.

    My mind works better in sentences with spaces and long paragraphs loose me sometimes cause I need to picture what is going on at the same time I am reading.
