Dealing with the utility companies is notoriously a nightmare, but we have no choice since we're trying to separately meter our basement apartment. Eric worked his magic with WASA earlier this week and tomorrow they are replacing the lead water line from the street to our property line on DC's nickel and from our property line into our house for $1500. This is $600 under budget from the quote WASA provided last fall. WASA has moved away from replacing lead lines street-by-street and now only does it on demand. It's exciting to have figured this out and impressive that they are mobilizing so quickly!
