    ELB Email to Cites Add'l Standing Water

    (June 16, 2004) -- Following our reports on standing water in parts of ELB, coinciding with efforts to prevent mosquito-borne West Nile Disease, has received email about standing water elsewhere.

    One reader says standing water at the north intersection of Conant St. at Charlemagne Ave. has been nicknamed "Lake Charlecon." We stopped by and got these pix:

    Charlemagne/Conant June 16/04

    Charlemagne/Conant June 16/04

    Charlemagne/Conant June 16/04

    Charlemagne/Conant June 16/04

    As we snapped these photos, a man came out of a nearby house, said he has family living here...and they've complained about the Conant/Charlemagne situation "for at least six to eight months."

    The person whose email first alerted us to the problem said she emailed Councilwoman Jackie Kell...and received a June 9 email reply indicating the Councilwoman wants to have the area inspected as soon as possible.

    Further to follow as newsworthy.
