The geography of the hill that the roads on is kind of a challenge for water supply. We don’t have hydrants here so it’s a little bit of a challenge to haul water. They’re hauling water from about 8 or 9 miles away to get here and the way the hill is with the pool we can only fill it halfway.”Conary says the homeowners were insured.
