Someone mentioned recently that there was no water flowing from Barrel Spring

I don't know if restoring the water to the trough is a PCTA Trail Coordinator

PCTA office knows who needs to be informed of this failure so they can
initiate repairs before the big surge of through-hikers reaches Barrel
