I think NASA will check it out...but are not willing to share the results in real time...hence the diversion story... Though I don't totally discount caution regarding the potential for some sort of contamination to possible basic life forms in the water....sort of like "War of the Worlds" in reverse..we bring our germs to them... :D

Test for Damp Ground at Mars' Seasonal Streaks Finds None
The new results from NASA's Mars Odyssey mission rely on ground temperature, measured by infrared imaging using the spacecraft's Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS). They do not contradict last year's identification of hydrated salt at these flows, which since their 2011 discovery have been regarded as possible markers for the presence of liquid water on modern Mars. However, the temperature measurements now identify an upper limit on how much water is present at these darkened streaks: about as much as in the driest desert sands on Earth.
I'm thinking closer examination might turn up evidence of electrical processes at work, perhaps they don't want to open up that can of worms.
"Totally dry mechanisms for explaining RSL should not be ruled out."

But will that include something like localised ion winds removing surface dust to expose a darker layer underneath?

Sub-surface "lake" on Mars

Radar evidence of subglacial liquid water on Mars

Remember when "ice" was spotted on the mountains of Venus? Of course, there's a much greater "chance" for this sub-surface lake on Mars because scientists "know" the planet was once covered by vast oceans.

Every time I hear about "Earth-like" exoplanets, I am reminded of early 20th century astronomy when Venus was a jungle planet, or when Italian pastries were observed on Mars.

This speculation has been going on for a long time. A Google search for Martian water gave me this: ... batana.htm
