— The water is back on at a mobile home park in southern Wake County that was without service for nearly four days.

Amy Jo Middleton, property operations manager for River Stone Corp., which manages Horseshoe Mobile Home Park, said Monday that a leak in a water pipe was to blame for the outage.

Residents said they had gone since late Wednesday without showers and had to ration their water supply.

Middleton blamed the delay in restoring water on the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and difficulty in finding the leak.

She said she and maintenance employees contacted multiple plumbers to look into the issue and even tried contacting local emergency officials, a portable toilet company and a pool company for assistance.

Water was finally restored around 6:30 p.m. Sunday, she said.

Middleton said the property management company plans to hold a community meeting to hear residents’ concerns about the water issues.
