I have not questioned this in a while, but it is now becoming apparent that the situation is out of control.
Continual â€“ 24/7 â€“ pumping out of our aquifer at the corner of 248th Street and 52nd Avenue just seems to never end!
At this time of year, it is vital that our aquifer be recharged after a long and dry summer, but the construction company seems to be completely ignorant of that fact. We have now noticed the pumping for a solid three weeks, even on weekends, and yet there seems to be no action or sign of completion of the work in that one spot whatsoever.
What is going on there? No other portion of the line has taken this long.
I realize there are still a lot of issues with the line, including what is happening at the Salmon River, but if work is stalled, then why must we be subjected to seeing our water just pumped out, day in and day out? If they cannot work there right now, then shut off the pumps.
At this point, all our wells will be dry by the end of the year.
Congratulations to our mayor and councilors in the recent election, but now we really need to see some action on this vital situation.
