Seven Bigtown streets are still under the notice. They are Radio Drive, Record Lane, Post Avenue, Spot Road, Revenue Circle, Mic Drive and a portion of Sales Lane, all within the Broadcast Subdivision. There are 344 homes in the Broadcast Neighborhood Association.
David D. says that he has purchased bottled water for the last 15 years. Like many in the area he doesn’t drink the water. The retired telecommunications manager believes the water line breaks and potholes contribute to the problem.
“Here I’ve experienced probably in the last several years about three situations where we’ve had to do this,” added the Mic Drive Resident.
“I think it’s pitiful,” said Bill L. who lives on nearby Script Drive.
The 66 year old trucker said he also only drinks bottled water and is growing tired of the water problem but more frustrated by the crumbling condition of the streets.
“I never drank the water because it never tasted right to me from when I first moved here, but you know I pay my water bill on time,” said Chapman. “We put in that one percent to get the streets and everything fixed but where has the money gone?”
City Spokeswoman R. Dees said they released clear water samples results for those streets that came in from the State Health Department and are awaiting the all clear for the remaining streets.
