PASCO, WA – NBC Right Now was on the scene Monday night as dozens of residents at the Flamingo Village Mobile Home Park in Pasco stormed the front office, upset that they had no water.

It seems some maintenance work to a leaking water line pipe at the mobile home park became a much bigger issue. When workers decided to turn off the main valve while they fixed the issue it would not turn back on.

 Plenty of those people living at Flamingo Village stormed the office in what the property manager called a mob of angry people. Police responded and had to help diffuse the situation. Then, they stuck around and helped secure a specific wrench needed to get the water back on.

"Police officers were immeasurably helpful. They really really helped out because they were able to knock on the right doors and get the right people to respond. They called the fire department for us looking for that extra 4 inch pipe wrench; things I never could have done without them," said Angela Watkins, the Property Manager.

Watkins went on to explain how they did bring out cases of bottled water for people overnight. Residents went without running water from Monday night into the morning. By 1 pm she was happy to report the water is back on.
