WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — After receiving calls Wednesday morning about residents at the Indiana Veterans Home allegedly not having water, News 18 spoke to the superintendent about the issue.

This isn’t the first incident News 18 has received calls about at the Veterans Home.

Residents on Wednesday say they were given two bottles of water to use for washing and drinking purposes.

Superintendent Linda Sharp said that a water main broke Tuesday evening at around 10.

Maintenance found the leak and decided to shut off all water to fix it.

She says the water was turned back on by 11 on Wednesday morning.

As far as complaints go, Sharp said no one has reached out to her at all.

From not having air conditioning in the summertime to a recent bed bug incident, and now this.
