    Could you make an Inquiry into the cause of the “temporary water shortage”, instead of the just printing their press release, verbatum. It would certainly make for a more complete story.

    Mark, when I know, I’ll let you know. Our primary purpose here was to let people know about the Advisory.

    Mark, thanks to you & your team for keeping the community informed. We appreciate your efforts.

    Mark, It clearly states ” repair of the pump” as the problem… Story complete.

    Thursday, Aug 17 @ 12:10 pm
  • Mark Jurkowitz | Outer Banks Voice

    Yes, and once the problem was identified, we reported it.
    On the other hand, Larry, is any story truly complete?

    Well this one is unless you need to know specifically failed on the pump, which in turn prompted them to request conserving water until the problem ( the pump ) could be repaired.
