"...Open 9am-1am, but open 24 hours on Saturday and Sunday, August 27 and 28... Call the office or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to arrange fill-ups during the event week."

O.K. kvd. To get this straight:
* you've "heard" of problems - no first hand personal experience of problems (where full details are available) - so you don't know if any of the alleged "problems" occurred during the published service hours, if they went to the right place, or if they checked for signs on the door like "please call xxx-xxx for service" or "back in five minutes"
* you're bitching about no 24 hour service, implying you (and others) expected it all days, yet 24-7 isn't what was published
* the water contact info was published, yet no mention if the people having issues getting water had bothered to acquire that information or use that contact info if they had it or what happened when they did

But why would you blame anyone other than those raiding?
I wonder if any got charged with theft of water, trespassing or such.

Good job you weren't counting on getting water in Gerlach, you didn't get your water availability info right.
You've been 'doing it a lot longer than most of us', yet without first hand personal experience of problems, based on unsubstantiated allegations and your claim of facts different from what's published, you go and bitch and defame the whole town? Highschool kids washing cars? WTF kvd. Then, yeah, kvd, this is about you.
You owe those you insulted an apology.
