pt8 Magdalena (not fixed)

e: ... it is not fixed ... it was a complete misstatement by local media ... "crews repairing the well announced it was finally fixed" ... is not true ... that's why nobody took credit ... and why no officials were named in the article.

Water start flowing again in Magdalena
jun 27, 2013

“We have some water in our lines,” said village mayor Sandy Julian. “People are thinking that we’re dry completely. We’re not. We have some water. We don’t have as much as we used to. We’re only pumping 50,000 gallons a day.”

Rehab work on an old village well is expected to start next week, then engineers plan to re-drill the well that’s providing a trickle now.
