There have been multiple breaks in the Menlo Park city water mains that have impacted this neighborhood over the last couple of years. Two in the last month have caused La Entrada to close twice, sending approximately 700 students home each day. Is the city is proactively maintaining and replacing it's pipes? These breaks are destructive to property as well as education and student life.

@Sharon Heights,
Worse than that, is how woefully uninformed school districts are about the health effects of water damaged facilities, especially in children.
