Residents and businesses on T Street are being hit hard. Here are tweets from a resident and Lupo Verde at 14th and T.
As of now, the main is scheduled to be repaired in 2016 at the earliest, which simply isn't good enough. Emergency fixes clearly are not working. DC Water did note that "following selection of water mains [for replacement] there is an extensive design phase that can take up to three years before construction will begin."
While I continue to push the timeline with the city, neighbors should feel free to express their concerns directly to DC Water. You can email Lisa Barton in the Office of the General Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell the city that three years is too long to wait. Thanks!
