Water Woes August 2005

In August 2005, on the first day of one of our week-long directed retreats, the old water line feeding the house completely broke down!  We had a house full of retreatants and no running water!!  Our guests remained good natured, making do with bottled water and trips to the Cooleys’ house for showers.

Volunteers labored daily throughout August to clear the 360 feet of woods, dig a trench, lay the water line, locate the spring, put in a 600 gallon holding tank, and connect everything up again.  We now have abundant, clear, delicious spring water available at every tap once again!
