A steady stream continues to flow from the water meter at this home on Harrington Woods Road in Charlotte. It has been that way for weeks!
Geoffrey reported the problem to us online saying, "Water meter has been leaking since before August 31. It has not been corrected."
The neighbors are annoyed too. The constant stream flows in front of two more homes before the unused water finds its way to the nearest drain.
The person who lives here where this leak is says they called Charlotte Mecklenburg Utilities Department themselves to report the problem. They were told it wouldn't be fixed until after the Democratic National Convention. Air Force One left nearly two weeks ago!
In my correspondence with CMUD it responded to my email right away saying they looked at this problem within 24 hours and it is on the list to get fixed.
But we think the more important question is when?
CMUD couldn't answer that question. It doesn't have a date set for repair. It claims their goal is to have leaks fixed within eight weeks.
We are going to hold CMUD to that. We're going to visit this spot until week eight to see whether it is fixed.
It is already two weeks into that window which means over the next six weeks, according to CMUD standards, this should be fixed.
