This week, Watchdog brings you an update on a still-unresolved problem. Update:: Watchdog reported in July about the fountain in the middle of Druid Lake, which at the time had not been working for at least a month. The fountain had been featured in Watchdog in 2007, when a lightning strike blew out its electrical system. That came after a $700,000 renovation in 2004. And then this year, as the fountain turns 50, Reservoir Hill resident Michael Baseman once again noted the absence of the streaming water, which he particularly enjoyed at dusk or before sunrise, when illuminated by colored light.

A picnic in the park. Let's choose sides. That's what playing soccer has been like at Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pa., for sophomore forward Jeff Kocher (C.M. Wright) so far this season. Kocher and the Warriors hit Brooklyn, N.Y., last week, playing Polytechnic University and Webb Institute in the Polytechnic Invitational. Kocher had six goals and three assists in two games, and his team amassed 21 goals and yielded just one goal. Lycoming pounded Polytechnic, 9-1, in the championship game, after Kocher lit up Webb for five goals and one assist in a 12-0 rout.

A water main break reopened Wednesday at Falls Road and Northern Parkway in Baltimore, and repair work is likely to affect traffic in the area through the end of the week, according to public works officials. The break was initially found Tuesday on southbound Falls Road about 200 feet north of its intersection with Northern Parkway, according to city Department of Public Works spokesman Kurt Kocher. A clamp on the leak failed Wednesday morning, Kocher said. A portion of Falls Road south of Northern Parkway was being used as a staging area for construction equipment, causing southbound Falls Road traffic to be detoured onto westbound Northern Parkway, Kocher said.

A Baltimore County Circuit judge cleared Ravens linebacker Brad Jackson yesterday of an assault charge filed by the mother of his two children. Judge Robert E. Cahill Sr. ruled there was insufficient evidence to prove that Jackson assaulted Gretchen Kocher during an exchange of their children outside her Owings Mills apartment on New Year's Eve. Kocher had sought an order requiring Jackson to attend counseling and surrender a handgun. She said she was afraid of Jackson and alleged that on the day of the incident, he became angry at comments she made, slapped her as she sat in her car and opened her car door so that his wife could jump in and attack her. At a hearing yesterday, Kocher's attorney, J. Allan Cohen, submitted photos taken after the incident that showed scratches on Kocher's hands and face.

Water has been restored to businesses and residences affected by a major water main break Sunday that caused extensive flooding in the Mount Vernon neighborhood, a Baltimore public works spokesman said. Residences, restaurants and offices that had lost water or had low pressure were set to be back at full strength by last night, spokesman Kurt Kocher said. Kocher recommended that people remove the aerators from their taps and turn on the water to flush out sediment that might have accumulated, although the water is safe to drink.

THE PROBLEM: The sole hydrant on a street has been out of service for more than six months. THE BACKSTORY : Roy L. Shover Sr. wrote an e-mail to "Watchdog" to prevent, as he put it, "a very possible tragic event." His mother lives on Unetta Street off Wilkens Avenue in Southwest Baltimore. Shover says that the hydrant on her block has had an "out of service" sign on it for at least half a year and that it's the only hydrant on that street. He found other hydrants in the neighborhood "quite a distance from her home."

The problem: A Tuscany-Canterbury sewer project has stretched more than two months past its originally posted completion date. The backstory: Carol Gamble lives in The Colonnade on University Parkway at Canterbury Road, one street east of Linkwood Road. Linkwood has been closed since April, when a construction project began. Originally a "Road Closed" sign there indicated that the project would be completed by July 14. However, as that date approached, the specific date disappeared from the sign, and work has continued until the present, more than two months since that original completion date.

Water was restored last night to 30 homes and an elementary school in Rosedale in Eastern Baltimore County, after a water main break Monday afternoon in the 5200 block of Hazelwood Ave., a spokesman for the city's Department of Public Works said. While the break has been repaired and the water is flowing, traffic will continue to be detoured until the damaged roadway, near Daybreak Terrace, is replaced, said Kurt Kocher, the spokesman. Kocher said a break in a 12-inch water main caused water to gush onto the streets and resulted in a drop in water pressure in the homes and nearby McCormick Elementary School.

The sewage that backed into several Canton homes over the weekend was caused by a grease clog in an 8-inch sewer pipe, Department of Public Works officials said yesterday. Several sewage backups have occurred in the 2900 block of Elliott St. over the past few years, residents said. Workers have cleared the clog, department spokesman Kurt L. Kocher said yesterday, and the city will take several steps to prevent the clogs - and resulting backups - from recurring. Besides residences, the sewer line in the Canton neighborhood serves several restaurants and bars, and Kocher said the grease might be coming from those establishments.

With the city's three reservoirs largely replenished by recent rain and snow, Baltimore water officials have shut down the flow of supplementary water from the Susequehanna River. The reservoir system was at almost 82 percent of capacity yeterday, up from a low of about 64 percent when the pumps on the Susquehanna near Deer Creek were first switched on in December. "We don't want to say the drought is totally over. But the situation we're facing now is vastly improved over what we were facing in December," said Kurt L. Kocher, spokesman for the city's Department of Public Works.
