Infrastructure Failure.

Posted by Dirck on 7 January, 2011

The quick note today is a two parter.  The city was briefly cut off from its main supply of water.  The first part of the note is one of thanks to those who struggled with the recalcitrant equipment to get it back in operation before any actual effects were felt.

I can’t quite decide on the second part.  I’ll declare it to also be one of thanks to my fellow city residents who heeded the call to not use water too freely.  We were apparently a briefly-perceptible minority, as indicated by this portion of the city’s declaration of the resumption of service:

 During Thursday evening Regina residents reduced their consumption by only 18 per cent over the previous day. On Friday morning, consumption did not drop significantly when compared to the previous mornings.

Way to respond to a potential crisis, gang.
