You would think that all the taxes we pay in Maryland that you could get a better response than this when you have a problem like this. What a joke this state is.

Where is the County Executive? As we all know he is playing it safe by doing nothing. The people in Reisterstown, Owings Mills and Glyndon are still without water waiting probably for days for the towers to fill. If he cared or had any guts he would cycle water to those who were restored to allow enough flow thru to the towers of the northern areas.

Why can't someone just tell us the truth...it goes along way. Is it me or do some of you feel the news is blocking this story just a tad. DUH...we know we have no water, we know what the problem is,we know where the problem is...all we want to know is when will the problem be fixed. Turn the water off between 12 and 5 am to those who are not conserving. Come on, we know who has water, just give your neighbors a break and stop being selfish.
This of course being the truth that the tanls just need time filling up. Who knows....we are ONLY 15,00o people, why should we count.
I am sorry for all the businesses, they are the ones truly suffering. As if the blizzards were not enough.

Seriously! This is ridiculous! What is taking things so long to be restored and repaired around here. I am from Montgomery County. I relocated to Reisterstown in order to attend school. Not until my relocation have I witnessed such slow responses to emergencies. First, the tree fell on the BGE equipment and it takes then more than 24 hours to restore electricity. Then, snow removal was a joke. Now, we have not had water since Saturday, and it is Tuesday! In Montgomery County, our electricity was always restored within 30 to 45 minutes. Afte water breaks, the water was back on after 3 hours. People who run this county must really get their act together! I am not staying with the relatives in Montgomery County due to water outage. I also stayed in the hotel as well. Will our hotel fees be reimbursed if we mail the receipts to the Baltimore County officials? What should we all do? The least they can do is provide water to us to flush the toilets and that is what they are doing - the least.

What a drag, it's even effecting us in California. I need to talk to a business there, but they are not responding due to the water situation. Doesn't the government know that large animals like us cannot live without H2O?
