Three days after Sunday morning's 6.0-magnitude earthquake, and still, hundreds of residents in Napa are without water.
And for residents of Craigie Court, a broken water main not only created a sinkhole, it forced neighbors to go to Costco and 7-Eleven for food and to use swimming pools and backyard ponds to wash and bathe.
“No showers since Sunday,” resident Diane Meyers said. “Toilets – we’ve got a little backyard fish pond. We’ve just been using pond water. The fish are just going to have to lump it, but they’re mostly guppies, so that’s alright.”
“I’m going over my grandparent’s house to shower and then we have five gallon jugs filled with water,” Lucas Hill said.
The majority of Napa residents had utilities fully restored by Monday afternoon. But as of Tuesday, the city reported a total of 107 water lines still needed repair. That means 400 customers, out of 25,000, were without water.
