Why Is there 10-15 white utility trucks with spotlights on, a bunch of workmen walking around with flashlights shining side to side on the ground (all around Hamilton, Washington, Division, 16th, 17th, 18th and on State) tongiht? And why is our tap water brown and NOISY??

Gee, let's think for a second. It's called a water main break and the work crews are fixing it late at night.

Don't worry. Turner closed wells 5&8 I'm sure that will cure the problem.

There cnt be water main break, there cant be any problem with our infrastrucutre.

Think back, our water rates went up to fix these problems until along come the HEAD COWARD, ABSTAINING QUEEN, and lapdogs telling us that it was a 29 million mistake, no work was needed.

So if you think it was a water main break, brown water etc contact Robinson for their OPINION on what the problem is. I am confident us taxpayers has more money laying around doing nothing for another study by Robinson to see what the problem is.

Did you hear what Tom Kelly said about Robinson's plan for the water. When the new alderman pressed Robinson about coming to the podium at the next council meeting Turner, Van Dyke and Kelly tried to shut him up. All the new councilman wanted to know was what is Robinson's plan.

What was Tom's response? He said, "maybe you want to know but we don't want to know".

That sums up the last two years.

I can't wait for election day.

the posters water issue has to be a isolated case, and should probably check their plumbing first.

In regards to your comment, yes could call the water dept yes. but remember there is no problem with the cities infrastructure for sewer and water. That is why they having been trying to lower the water bill. Now had this poster problem occured after April 9th, then lookout, Robinson has a plan to fix this type of problems, it will no longer be a 29million dollar mistake, but suddenly a 30 million+ emergency that has to be addressed right away and possibly even have to raise more money to pay for this emergency. Timing is everything in this city.

It's not ALWAYS brown, it was a one-time incident, and just occurred when there were numerous work trucks around. Of course I tried to call the water dept., but it WAS after hours so it just rang and rang. Being that there have been so many posts regarding our water issues here on Topix, I thought that MAYBE somebody here would happen to know what was going on that night. My bad.

WOW! ALL those work trucks were all over the neighborhood that night with their spotlights and hoses, and numerous workers walking around doing sweeping ground checks with their flashlights just because of little 'ol me and my supposed isolated plumbing problem? I did not realize I was that important!!

Apparently you do not know how to read, or at the very least, comprehend what you read. Must be due to your constant, annoying, need to give Robinson Engineering and Kelly Turner as much name recognition and advertising as possible.

No actually you must not understand sarcasm. By stating it was a isolated incident and to check your plumbing, was referring to the alledged facts stated by the HEAD COWARD, ABSTAINING QUEEN, FORKED TONGUE, and SLEEPY, that according to Robinson it was a 29 million mistake on raising the water rates, for there was no problem with the cities infrastructure. That would include sewer,water,roads. Even though the voters just approved a tax increase for a yearly program to fix roads, and a 10 yr was put in place to start correcting sewer/water issues.

So hopefully you understand the humor when suddenly as the election is getting closer, so is Robinson after 2 yrs, nearly 1 million in more studies going to release there 30 million infrastrucutre for the sewer and water improvements that will be needed after April 9th. All this when it was a 29million dollar mistake as long as Robinson was doing the engineering.

Does that clarify for you again.

Yes, It clarifies that you are a woman OBSESSED.

Is there ANY way we can clarify, to you, the fact that we are all SO VERY sick and tired of your persistent, DAILY one-track obsession. You try to turn each and every single thread topic into the only topic YOU care about. Its getting quite old. Believe it or not, NOT everyone here is bursting blood vessels over Robinson and Turner..WE ALL get it and are well aware of what is going on in regards to the two....this community DOES want to discuss OTHER TOPICS that do no included either of those. This is the LOCKPORT,IL TOPIX.....NOT the Robinson & Turner show. I mean, seriously lady, you ought to give it a rest, you're going to give yourself a stroke.

Thanks for the reply, and hopefully you will show the same regards whenever anyone constantly calls out peoples mothers, or always states it is Pete,Ron,Joe, etc., when facts are presented that doesn't shine the almighty light on the HEAD COWARD, ABSTAINING QUEEN, FORGUED TONGUE,and of course SLEEPY. For you are right there are other issues in Lockport. To resolve these issues is going to take forward thinking no matter who is in charge.

What is done is done, lets move forward. Unfortunately, I have yet to see your name with this type of comments, when a topic is started that always turns into belittling taxpayers who post their views and want to have a open discussion without the pottymouth.

Prove me wrong, sign up to topix so you use the same name always and will be glad to have a open debate with you on any issue you choose other than the above mentioned yahoo's.

You are so right. The other members not mentioned have been held accountable and took action. They put in place a plan to fix the sewer and water issues with a financial plan to back it up. So before you put any blame on the others, at least they did their part. It was not a great outcome for some that voted that way lost their seat on the council for trying, but I would take a council member who tries to fix something, rather than doing nothing, yet still collecting all that extra money. Of course minus legal and engineering fees to you know who.

So if the homeowner with the brown water and broken pipes has any issue it is with the newly elected council members who voted to stop any repairs until millions of dollars more in studies was done. Bottom line, every water main break, water issue, raw seweage in the street rests solely on you know who. HEAD COWARD< ABSTAINING QUEEN,FORKED TONGUE and SLEEPY. Out of town boy is gone so no sense in blaming him. The rest of the council including the mayor kept trying to want to fix the problems with money collected. Again at least try to do something.

The only money that was and is being collected is from the water rate increases and that is to pay for on-going maintenace and repairs....NOT to replace ALL the bad sewers, water mains, hydrants. The sales tax was passed for road work...nothing else. There are no MILLIONS set aside for any repairs to fix ALL the problems that exist....so don't say this council stopped anything. All they did was piss and moan at each other because some people did not get what they wanted. Well that is just too damn bad. They had the right to cancel one plan for another...that's the way it goes. Do yourself a favor and try....just try...to let the system work. These engineering companys are NOT OUT TO SCREW LOCKPORT ! Why would they risk their years of business expertise just to screw Lockport ??? The problem is NOT with Robinson or CMT....it lies with the bumbling people on the council. That brown water ain't going away anytime soon....no matter who wins or loses an election....so get a softener...it works !!

They have the right to cancel one plan for another? Well, what exactly is Robinson's plan?

Robinson's plan was to eliminate the microfiltration plant and um, uh, hmm,... nothing. That's right, nothing.

You want the system to work? OK, what system? Do nothing again for the next four years? That system has worked pretty darn well for the past 50 years hasn't it?
