  • Couple: Google Fiber dig destroyed our well, water and health

    Edwin Burley and Renia Tripp suffered damage to their well when a contractor for Google Fiber dug there a little over a year ago, installing a cable for its high-speed Internet service. The married couple asked the workers to be mindful of their well, but believe the contractor caused damage that allowed a high concentration of iron to build up in their drinking water. Edwin suffered severe health problems from this and they are still out of water.
