Water Remains Out For Some In Nashville -- Sky Arnold

Nashville, Tenn ---- Any other time Rachel Barden considers it an advantage to have the highest home on the block.

Friday night Barden had plenty of reasons to question that advantage.

For the past three days Barden has had no water and has had to use buckets to fill her toilet and to have water for other needs..

 "It was an adventure for a little bit but it requires a lot of thinking and planning but it's exhausting," said Barden.

Barden's water stopped flowing Wednesday along with the rest of Green Hills when the pipe that supplies the area along with Oak Hill, Forest Hills and part of Crieve Hall burst.

Metro water restored service to most of the 15,000 impacted customers Thursday by installing two temporary pumps but homes at higher altitudes are still having problems.

"I don't go anywhere without my gallon jug and say can I have 3 gallons of water to take back with me," said Barden.

That's where a third temporary pump will hopefully come in.

Crews installed it Friday and Metro Water Spokesperson Sonia Harvat says it should help people like Barden if others in the area don't water their lawns until the main pipe is fixed next week.
"We're very hopeful this pump along with the other two and a connection to Harpeth Valley will be able to push enough pressure even to the highest points of our city," said Harvat.
