We have good news tonight! Amanda has been in contact with several people at the water company (including the CEO of Citizens Energy Group). They were very apologetic about the miscommunications over the past week. Apparently, having 2 homes on 1 property (with separate addresses) added to the confusion.
The leak has been fixed and there is no more water running into the street. The leak was on the other side of the meter and no water was running toward the house. The spokes person was very helpful and apologized several times for all the confusion.
The gravel doesn't look great but given the drought, it's probably the best patch at the moment. And the water in the street should dry up soon.
We owe a big thank you to Linda Cuff for giving us some great suggestions on how to get this issue resolved. Without her suggestions, who knows how long it would have taken to get the leak fixed.
And while we're on the subject of water, our area of Franklin Township got about 2 inches of rain tonight. We were at the Irvington Historical Society where there was plenty of lightening & thunder but no rain by 9pm. We're saying more prayers that the East/SouthEast side get more rain in the next several days. And then, hopefully, all our water problems would be resolved - for now.
