Like many of you, I have received information, warnings, & advice regarding the recent flood from many different sources–not all of them trustworthy. So this afternoon, I cruised the Internet looking for sources of useful & reliable information. (Specifically I wanted to know when the K.R. Harrington Water Treatment Plant would reopen. Dirty cars & bucket showers are ok for a while, but how long will this last? ) To my mind, the best one- stop source is http://www.nashville.gov/FLOOD/ This site will answer most citizens’ questions, but if not, it is still a great place to start.
Along the left hand side of the page are tabs such as Clean Up Guidelines, Shelters, and Water Conservation. And no, although the Water Conservation section includes a wealth of information, Metro Public Works isn’t giving us a date on which service will resume at Harrington. In government lingo, “We do not have an expected restoration date.” Hmm. Looks like limited toilet flushing continues for the time being.
