Th(e) community has been through hell and back and are still living a nightmare.”

    It may take a lot of water, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be a lot of water at once. Think about the immense water-created formations in caves that are built, literally, one drop at a time. A small persistent leak might not be as bad as a rushing torrent, but given time…
