A man who has property on resettled Little Bay Islands says somebody forgot to shut off the taps at the municipal water supply. As a result, his house and contents could be ruined.

The lights were turned off in Little Bay Islands December 31 but other services, including water, were supposed to be discontinued a few weeks before that. Perry Locke says the water is still running.

Locke plans to stay in his house during the summer months, and has installed about $10,000 worth of solar equipment in his concrete basement to live off the grid. There is no electricity on the island. Hes worried that the water will flood his basement.

He says government is just ignoring his requests to turn the water off. He wonders if they even know how to shut it off.
