Legum & Norman, an Associa company, recently donated more than 2,600 bottles of water to three of its communities affected by the massive water restrictions in Prince George’s county.
Urgent repairs to a nearly 50-year-old water main in Prince George’s County required the county to impose mandatory water restrictions on the more than 200,000 residents and businesses despite increasing summer temperatures. Authorities warned that the aged water main was in danger of exploding.
“As soon as we learned of this incident impacting our residents we wanted to try to help them in any way we could,” said Legum & Norman president and CEO John Rhodes. “Our staff acted swiftly to secure the necessary funds and we were able to provide some help to our loyal homeowners.”
Hundreds of thousands of people in suburban Washington have been sweating through a recent heat wave under orders to avoid long showers, turn off sprinklers and think twice about flushing the toilet. Carwashes, day care centers and fast-food restaurants shut their doors as well. And the military base that is home to the President’s Air Force One was reduced to essential operations.
Crews were able to avoid shutting off water to residents because they were able to close a large valve nearby. The valve had faulty gears that had to be modified in order to work properly.
With the restrictions in place, the bottles of water donated by Legum & Norman were put to good use by the residents, and they were thankful for the help and support of their community managers.
