I agree with the other writers' views regarding the service provider - all the water haulers are as prompt as possible in delivery of the water, all of them are working very hard to keep up with the community's water demands in times of dry weather, all of the haulers we have dealt with are very pleasant when delivering the water.
But when and if I have a problem with the water delivered - which I do this time, I would expect someone else besides me would want to get to the bottom of the problem. The water hauling company may want to make certain that the City's water collection site does not have a problem - the City should make sure the collection sites do not have a problem. Currently due to construction the water is being collected from hydrants, someone told me that they should not collect from hydrants because they are dry lines and it would take a lot of flushing before the water would be any good.
All I know is that I am very confident that the problem is not with my tank or gutters, and would like the haulers and the City to make sure that community consumers are receiving decent water.
Meanwhile I am very thankful I have water to shower and do laundry! Maybe we should give up on drinking water from our tank anyways and purchase purified water as it is probably safer anyway! We probably shouldn't rely on quality rain water because it could carry the contaminants of pollution from various sources.
We have all been warned of the problems the City has had with its system... Maybe this was just the universe's way of telling us we should start buying purified water!
