Day 39

It’s hard to tell, but

February 7th, 2012

there was a considerable amount of water gushing out of the sidewalk crack. A water line must have burst beneath the pavement; a guy walking past told me it's been like that for over a week. The leak created a little stream flowing all the way down the block, around the corner, and down that block as well.


  1. “Its not my job.”…comes to mind…

    Not enough money in the budget to fix it just yet. Hard to believe but we had one of those by my house…when it got came closer to the street level. during the summer never knew there was a leak.

    Hay Jim nice to see you around!

    So, did anyone report it????? Anyone at all??? You Matt ??? The guy you talked to ??? If the guy has known about it for a week, did he call it into the water dept. so they know about it? I have called in problems I’ve seen. How else is the water dept. supposed to know if no one alerts them to the problem? Makes me mad when people see something wrong and do nothing about it.

    In most major cities, there are hundreds of water line leaks at any given time. With that much infrastrcuture (especially for urban areas like LA and Houston, which are more spread out, and have more line per person that a dense area like NYC) the system is never really “fized, and there’s almost always a backlog, even in the best budget conditions
