— Repairs to a water main in Garner took a little less than 24 hours, and residents and businesses near Vandora Springs Road and Timber Drive were able to use their water without boiling by 5 p.m. Friday.

The City of Raleigh, which provides water service to that part of Garner, issued a warning Thursday recommending that residents boil water after a drop in water pressure created the possibility of contaminants entering the water system.

    Obviously this was caused by global warming and guns.

    How in the world do you go from a broken water main to fracking?! You want something to worry about, worry about the nation's infrastructure, most of which is decades old. Water lines, power grids, roads, bridges, etc. Stuff gets old, stuff gets used, it breaks. Fracking is a whole different issue than the topic of this story.

    already water issues and fracking has not even started yet,, maybe a picture into the future if and when it does, no turning back once it is done people,, you get 1 chance to make a decision, make sure you have your children's world in mind when making that decision and not just yourself at this time!!
