When the infrastructure of public services works well by the efforts of those in its employment and management, it needs to be recognized. That is the case today with the 29 Palms Water District.
There’s 840 feet of PVC water line from the Water District’s meter to my house. So when there’s a leak due to ground movement (or who knows why, and there have been many over the last eight years), the leak isn’t detected right away.
Unbeknown to me I had two leaks in the line. Late yesterday when my neighbors came home from work (they drive the line), they informed me about the leak. I walked the line and discovered another leak – and immediately shut off the water.
And will repair them this morning.
Meanwhile, not long ago the meter guy, Russell, drives up to informs me a meter read indicates the water usage is over its normal amount which indicates a possible leak. How’s that for service?
I called the Water District office: Stephanie said she will get the info up how much water was lost and compute the cost. That’s good service (hope the expense isn’t too great).
So much for the morning walk with my pal, Chow-Chow. That’s on the back burner for now. Now get your butt in gear and fix those leaks.
Thank you Russell, Stephanie and the 29 Palms Water District for good service.
