Quick Fix: When a Damaged 600V ComEd Line Meets Mother Nature

Contractor-Created 'Little Chernobyl', Meet Mother Nature

The white wall is a 7′ concrete retaining wall designed to create a mote around the 27W residential structure being built 20′ from the watergarden in 51W Onwentsia’s backyard. If you look closely about where the water level approaches the beginning of the wall, you’ll see a red paint mark. That’s the location where the 600V Commonwealth Edison service line was damaged by the contractor on December 1, 2012.

Rather than wait for a qualified electrical contractor to repair the damage according to ComEd safety standards, the contractor covered the damaged line with a plastic sleeve and proceeded to encase the damaged electrical line in concrete – knowing the intention was for the retention pond to fill with water when the Spring Rains would come.

They’re Here!

About Onwentsia Memorandum

I am a long time LF homeowner who has been witnessing an expansion of standing water each year getting deeper and wider. Each Spring, the next generation of ducks appear to raise their ducklings. But this year is different. Their habitat has been altered.
