Imperial Home Trailer Park without Water for Weeks
Some people in Lexington have had little to no water pressure since the beginning of the year.
“I haven’t had any hot water what-so-ever in over a month,” said Betty Travis who lives in the Imperial Homes Trailer Park.
Travis is a self-described clean fanatic but with only a little water pressure, she said she can’t clean.
“It’s a dirty, nasty situation,” said Travis.
Since the first cold snap in early January, neighbors at the Imperial Mobile Home Park said they haven’t had water pressure.
Travis said she has to boil water to wash her dishes and has to pour buckets of water she collects from a trickle into the washing machine and toilet for them to work. She said it takes hours to get enough water to do this.
The Rojas are another family without water pressure. They spend about an hour at McDonald’s to escape their water pressure-less home.
“We haven’t had a shower in a good while, probably around January 12th or somewhere in there because of the situation with the pipes,” said Jauanita Rojas, mother of four. “We come here to use the bathroom. I know that sounds bad but we use the bathroom here for as much as we can.”
ABC 36 reached out to the Imperial Mobile Home Park in Lexington but got a full voicemail box. ABC 36 called their offices in California who said the lack of water pressure was because of the weather and that they’re handling it. When ABC 36 called back for more answers they said they wouldn’t answer anyone’s questions and hung up.
“I want answers and I want water to come back on,” said Travis.
Residents said they’re told the water pressure won’t be back until the weather warms up in the spring.
They said the water company and Code Enforcement were out looking around on Monday. ABC 36 reached out to Code Enforcement but have not heard back at this time.
