ERSKINE ENQUIRER — It appears that the crew installing the water lines is almost finished until spring, when they will come back and repair all the damage done to our streets which seems to be very extensive. I was told they will be repairing all the paving they have destroyed. The project has not been without a lot of troubles such as leaking, hitting sewer lines and telephone lines. Must have been quite frustrating for them as well as us.
