Cherry Hill residents have water again

April 28, 1996|By Howard Libit | Howard Libit,SUN STAFF

Running water returned to Baltimore's Cherry Hill neighborhood early yesterday, allowing residents once again to take showers, flush toilets and brush their teeth.

"I got up this morning and turned on the faucet out of habit, and there it was! Water!" said LaVonica Jackson of the 400 block of Seabury Road. "I was so excited."

By 4: 30 a.m. yesterday, workers from the city's Department of Public Works had fixed the broken water main that had left all of Cherry Hill with little or no running water Friday and lowered water pressure in nearby Brooklyn and Westport.

The 30-inch main broke about 8 p.m. Thursday.
