This was a flood from the freeze on 2/3/11. The homeowners were out of town since late January and it was not until the Castle Rock Water Dept was reading water meters and noticed theirs was going too fast on 2/14/11 that they shut it off at the street and left a note on the door. The neighbors saw the note and called the homeowner who called us. I was the first on scene and the water had been running at open flow in three areas for 11 days.
